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.
