Hmm... for me it just worked out of the box.

I see.  Then this setting should have no impact on this present problem.

I don't use OSX any more, so I can't check it out, but I've never needed
this "escape non-ascii chars" for anything.  I'd deactivate it and if you
encounter problems when using some other program in Terminal, try to figure
