That cannot work! C-s is bound to incremental-search- or isearch-forward.

You should check the environment variables LANG and LC_ALL. They make GNU Emacs 
choose an encoding that corresponds to their values. It might work to override 
this setting by using in your init file

        (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8)

BTW, you don't need to repeat the letters "U T F - 8 - U N I X", the second and 
the other times you can use the arrow keys (up or down) to get your preferred 
value back. TAB also allows to expand the word started.
