Installer underflow

In the "Test Keymap" Mask of the installer, when testing the german keyboard and using the "äöü" keys, the letters do not get displayed. They do however get inputted, given that I can "delete" them anyway, which results in an underflow of the mask (see attachment).

1. Open installer
2. Select german keymap
3. Test keymap layout
4. Enter n * "ä" (or "ö" or "ü" for that matter)
5. backspace n times
6. Observe

Can you confirm that this occurs also with dialog(1) used outside of the installer? e.g.

% dialog --inputbox Test 8 60

Yes, reproducible outside of installer.
