After fooling around with it on my Linux console, I came up with a scenario that had the behavior you describe. In this scenario I set the LC_ALL environment variable to en_US.UTF-8 even though the Linux console could display only a few non-ASCII characters (so in some sense this is a misconfiguration). And I put (setq text-quoting-style 'grave) into my ~/.emacs file, indicating that I wanted traditional ASCII quoting. Emacs didn't look at the text-quoting-style setting when configuring the display table at startup, which seems wrong, so I patched master to fix that. Please do a git pull and give it a try. If it still doesn't work for you, please send the output of the shell command ‘locale’ just before invoking Emacs, and the output of the command ‘echo $TERM’, and a copy of the Lisp code that sets text-quoting-style in your ~/.emacs file. Thanks.
