In fact, that's pretty easy to reproduce here:

  $ emacs -Q                    # the usual main GUI frame appears
  M-x server-mode

then in a terminal:

  $ emacsclient -t foo.txt
  conférence                    # this works fine
  M-x flyspell-mode
  conférence                    # this gives garbled output

In both cases I wrote the word "conférence" using X composing, as
mentioned in my previous mail.

To answer your earlier question, I've tried will all sort of
GUI/console client combinations, ditto for combinations of --daemon
(to avoid starting the main GUI frame) and no --daemon, but that
doesn't seem to matter at all. In the above recipe I don't use
--daemon, but rather start server-mode from the main GUI frame. There
is no visible difference.

Well, it might be, of course. But in the above example I use -Q and
only activate flyspell-mode. So if it's an interaction with other
modes, then it's something very basic that Emacs uses by default, such
as text-mode (or server-mode, but that would be pretty weird).
