When I press the "é" key multiple times on my keyboard, here is what tmux print (notice the spaces) :

arcanis@~ > é é é é é é é é é é é é é

It also broke emacs when the file contains utf8 characters.

My locale is :

arcanis@~ > locale
LANG=en_US.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

How can I fix this ?

Is tmux itself started in a UTF-8 locale? –  Gilles Oct 21 '12 at 23:55
    
@Gilles Yes, the original locales are fr_FR.UTF-8 (except LC_ALL which is empty), and tmux is started using -u. –  Nison Maël Oct 22 '12 at 0:31
    
Try using the tmux command utf8 on and see if that helps. –  Keith Oct 22 '12 at 2:06
