Before I enter :encoding coomand info/info is:

(11,1)/(114,45)+5555 +flow -c1 G0[BBBB] 3(bash)
(114,45) KOI8-R color iso2022

After I enter :encoding CP1251 info/dinfo is:

(11,7)/(114,45)+5555 +flow -c1 CP1251 G0[BBBB] 3(bash)
(114,45) KOI8-R color iso2022

What are the outputs of 'dinfo' and 'info' commands?

For example I'm using KOI8-R terminal and in one screen terminal I login to CP1251 shell. I set :encoding CP1251 and expect to see output in this shell recoded from CP1251 to KOI8-R, but it isn't. Please, clarify behavoiur of encoding in man (in case I don't understand what it really do) or fix encdoing problem (in case this is bug of not recoding).
