gnome-terminal vs console

Where does gnome-terminal pick up settings that differ from the console?

For example, 'locale' on the console shows everything as 'en_US' but in
gnome-terminal it shows as 'english'.

But my main problem is that accented characters aren't handled properly
in gnome-terminal but they are in the console. 'less' just truncates the
accented character and whatever follows. 'vim' gets so totally confused 
that I can't edit anything in French in gnome-terminal.
