    Sorry, didn't read the thread so just hoping to say something useful:

    slackware 12.1 installes by default with "vt.default_utf8=0" as a kernel
    param which may be involved here. I saw that picture that someone posted
    and to me that was nothing new -- my console has always looked that way
    if I set my locale to a UTF8 locale but do not change the console font.

    "LANG=C menuconfig" works for me when I can't, won't or just don't start
    X with it's terminals with UTF8 fonts...

    Please just ignore if not a useful reply.
