I'm not sure how gnome-terminal's locale switching works, since I use a
UTF-8 locale. But with a latin1 locale, you can try to put the following
in your .vimrc:

set fileencodings=utf-8,latin1
set termencoding=latin1

This will have the side effect that if you edit an ascii file and add
non-ascii characters, the file will be saved as utf-8 by default (you
can change it with :set fileencoding=latin1).
