Oeps, missed that:)
In that case a likely candidate for upheaval is `libreadline'.
Look at `/etc/inputrc' and see that (input|output)-meta is on.

	# Be 8 bit clean.
	set input-meta on
	set output-meta on

You can also run it on on a per user basis (~/.inputrc), anyhow
have a look at `info rluserman', the ReadLineUSERMANual.

Hope this solves your problem.
