On what terminal are you doing this?  To what encoding is the 
terminal set?

Then re-emerge baselayout.  That should give you a default inputrc. 
In that file maybe these flags are relevant to your problem:

set meta-flag on
set input-meta on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on

If still no luck, then maybe your readline is broken?  But first 
check that everyting is emerged with the unicode USE flag.

Or wait, which ncurses are you using?  If 5.6*, then mask it and go 
back to 5.5-r3 and see if that helps.
