Ok, do you reboot as well?  Rebooting (or running unicode_start/stop by
hand) is needed to switch between utf-8 and non-utf-8 locales.

Also, there is a bug in console-tools and kbd packages that make the
switch happen only on VT1, so please check on that VT only.  The next
upload of kbd should fix the problem.

Ok, so that should be fixed first before having a look at brltty.

Yes: after setting the locale you need to run unicode_start or
unicode_stop according to whether your locale is UTF-8 or not.
Rebooting should do that automatically, but as I said above, a bug makes
it only work on VT1.
