Have you tried to set-terminal-coding-system ?
No, I did not, because its not necessary. GNU Emacs 21.3.50 works fine,
so why is GNU Emacs 22.0.50 failing? That's the question ...

Then please check the value of terminal-coding-system with those two
versions of Emacs-CVS.

mule-diag tells for 21.3.50: Coding system of the terminal: mule-utf-8
and for 22.0.50: Coding system of the terminal: iso-latin-1 -- because of loading disp-table!

Also give us the *date* of the version of Emacs-CVS
you call 21.3.50 (both names Emacs-21.3.50 Emacs-22.0.5 just refer to
Emacs-CVS and give us close to no info about which revision it is).

How can I determine that? I think on Saturday I did the last update for 22.0.50. 21.3.50 from Fink is packed in an archive *-20041117.tar.gz -- could be the date of check-out!

Once this is done, please try to set-terminal-coding-system to see which
value it should take.

When I set (set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8) deliberately for 22.0.50 I can see the March's month name in German correct as 'März' and in the mode-line abbreviated as 'Mär' -- and the HELLO buffer is almost complete (Arabic, Hindi, Kannada, Mayalam, Tamil are empty -- although some of the glyphs in the scripts Hindi, Kannada, Mayalam, Tamil are displayed when asked with C-u C-x = in the *Help* buffer and probably all of them are shown in mini-buffer!). Which is better than with 21.3.50 which additionally cannot display CJK glyphs too.
