Okay, I've a friend here who gave me access to his RedHat 8 box at home. It's
RedHatish issue, but there's a fix. I can't easily apply it here, but
hopefully tonight I can sort it.

Cool. Until the fix makes it out, a workaround is to unset the LANG var using

  unset LANG

which I recommend anyway --- UTF is rather a strange choice for a terminal.
This is RedHat being obscure.

I'll try to get the fix done ASAP.
