I cannot reproduce that problem with CHICKEN 5.3 on Debian.

  $ cat u.scm
  (import utf8)
  (print "őŐűŰ")

  $ csi -s u.scm

Isn't the problem related to your terminal?  Maybe redirect the output
of your program to a file and open it in an editor that supports UTF-8
to see if the problem persists.

All the best.
