H-m-m. I did not find any possibility to set an encoding in either `man
5 sshd_config` or in `man 5 ssh_config`. But I disabled AcceptEnv in
/etc/ssh/sshd_config so that the client environment would not influence
on the server side. It did not help.

At my box everything is reproduced 100%. Is it enough for the developers
to read this thread or should I post in some other list?
