UTF-8 problem

I'm having the exact same problem. It happens in virutal consoles (which
I still use a lot, especially on GUI-less servers) although I swear I've
seen the same problem in konsole with Linux fonts/colors, too. The
problem is as described above, but also affects apostrophes in man
pages as well. If there's any workaround, up to and including disabling
UTF-8 or whatever, I'd love to know. My locale is en-us anyway, so
disabling any i18n crap wouldn't bother me. I just want ncurses apps
and man pages to look sane again.
