I encountered this problem a while back and tried troubleshooting it
that way.  As it turned out, the unicode version of xterm was
installed on that machine.  There's got to be a better way to do this,
but I wound up just specifying the exact path to xterm in my
.ratpoisonrc file as follows:

bind c exec /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator
bind C exec /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator
