mcedit doesn't handle ZWNJ correctly.

It seems that even though MC handles input of ZWNJ character(and shows it by a dot) mcedit doesn't.

I can edit a file which has ZWNJ in it, but if I enter a ZWNJ character(Shift+Space in Persian keyboard layout) in a file it adds two dot characters in black background and somehow messes up file encoding(which should be UTF-8).

Those added characters has hex values E2 and 80, while ZWNJ in UTF-8 is sequence of three hex values E2, 80 and 8C.

you can test this by copying this text in mcedit and trying to open the file with some other editors like gedit:
