This doesn't sound as problem of console-setup. You may want to check
various things such as the value of the $TERM variable, your shell
(maybe it is no longer bash and your prompt is issuing bash-specific
commands), your locale (does the output of the "locale" command
correspond to the CHARMAP="..." setting in /etc/default/console-setup),
the behaviour in X terminal emulators - do xterm and rxvt show the same
odd behaviour as Linux console.
