This is actually fixed by the following:
# Colons not allowed; replace by spaces
# Accented characters (non UTF-8) cause debconf to
# hang, so we fall back to the default if the name
# contains any weird characters.
long="$(grep -e "$grepexp" "$2/$ini" | cut -d '"' -f2 | \
tr ':' ' ' | LC_ALL=C grep -v '[^a-zA-Z0-9 &()/_-]')"
That's however a bit poor, so cloning a wishlist bug. Phcoder suggested
on irc to use bootfont.bin to know the encoding, possibly simply through
a hash table of well-known font files.
