I am saddened to report that Korean appears to be missing some functionality.

With a recent logon svn (2009-03-14), on ubuntu, the Korean text is
not displayed in any of the browse windows.  It is definitely there,
as you can double click on it and it gets passed through to the lkb to
parse.  It is just invisible :-).

Did this happen?  If so, I am afraid it didn't fix Korean.  If not,
then there may yet be hope.
