I'd guess that the locale of the workstation is relevant here. Your
terminal is going to be running in your locale (you didn't mention if
was the system console or an X terminal, but I assume an X terminal),
and so it won't know how to deal with UTF-8 sequences output by the
commands you're running remotely.
Probably your best bet is to either enable UTF-8 locally or disable it
