Chinese string length ok if selected/dir, not ok if normal in Far Manager 3.0.4230

Hi,
Far Manager 3 shows up correctly for Chinese folders, for files that have been selected, and for files with cursor bar on it.
However, the display goes skew if the file is not selected.
Why is this so?

Ok, I figured it out, the border color need to be different to normal text so that it's drawn separately and correctly. Can the source be patched so that borders are always written to the screen buffer separately (as it is done when the color is different from normal text) ?

Switching off the “Cleartype-friendly redraw” in Interface options might help.

Tried switching it off, but this made it worse. It seems redraw is necessary for the correct display.

Many thanks, I tried a few other things, if I clear the Panel Settings > Highlight column separators then the column display is fixed. How do I change the title of the post to fixed?
