How 'bout taking the alias out of the question and try

   address@hidden ~ $ LC_ALL=C su -l
and
   address@hidden ~ $ LC_ALL=C su
and
   address@hidden ~ $ su -l

> Without that alias or when running sh instead of bash term work as expected.

What do you mean by "running sh instead of bash"?
Do you mean the shell from which you execute "su" or the shell of the
user to which you're su-ing?

Also, can you M-x trace-function-background RET term-emulate-terminal
RET, reproduce the problem and then show us the *trace-output*?
