What do you have for "display charset" in [global]? Mine's unset, which
gives LOCALE by default, which means I get to see Norwegian letters at
the CLI, but *only* because my LANG=no_NO.UTF-8. I also get the wanted
result when I set "display charset" to UTF-8.

If your LC_LANG is other than whatever_WHATEVER.UTF-8  you probably
won't get to see German characters at the CLI anyway, sniff sniff.
