That's not a proof.  Peter is right, the octal escapes you see are not
the codepoints of the Latin-1 characters you expect to see.  In fact,
these codepoints are invalid in Latin-1.

I suspect that the programs you run from Eshell (which programs are
those, by the way?) produce a Windows codepage encoding, not a Latin-1
encoding.

I have a few more questions:

  . What is the value of default-process-coding-system?

  . What is the value of locale-coding-system?

  . Does the problem happens in Emacs invoked as "emacs -Q"?
