Sorry, I didn't realize from your original message that M-x ansi-term
is all that is needed after "emacs -Q".

I think I see the problem.  term.el disables decoding of the shell
output, see term-exec-1.  So the text it gets from the shell is
unibyte, un-decoded text.  Therefore, whenever term.el calls other
functions, let alone functions that can be defined by the user, it
must decode the strings it passes to those functions.  And in this
case, it doesn't:

                         ((and (eq char ?\032)
                               (not handled-ansi-message))
                          (let ((end (string-match "\r?$" str i)))
                            (if end
                                (funcall term-command-hook
                                         (prog1 (substring str (1+ i) end)
                                           (setq i (match-end 0))))

Here 'str' is a unibyte string, while term-command-hook expects a
normal, multibyte string as its argument.

So please see if decoding the result of prog1 with
decode-coding-string, like you suggested to do in 'cd', but before
passing it to funcall, fixes the problem.  Something like this:

     (funcall term-command-hook
              (decode-coding-string
                (prog1 (substring str (1+ i) end)
                   (setq i (match-end 0)))
                locale-coding-system))
