As I said somewhere else, the use of unibyte is generally a bug.
It might superficially fix things sometimes, but then it's because of a bug
somewhere else.  In the OP's case, I'm pretty sure the problem is that
Emacs does not properly set the keyboard coding-system.

I don't think the manual should encourage to use workarounds (e.g. set
the unibyte:t cookie in your .emacs) rather than real fixes (set the
keyboard coding system properly).
