Hmm... that looks like a problem in dired: the file names in the output
of `ls' should follow file-name-coding-system, whereas the rest of the
output seem to use locale-coding-system.  Coudl you check if that's
indeed the case:
- create a file from the Finder using accented latin-1
  chars, as well as non-latin-1 chars).
- look at it in your dired and tell us what you see.

On a Darwin system, I very warmly recommend to stick to utf-8 coding
systems for everything, since it should avoid such problems.
