Comment (by QuLogic):

 That's odd. I tried printing out `keys` and ended up with `c3 b1`, which
 is the correct UTF-8 sequence for 'ñ'. I also tried this really short
 program (that I hope is correct), and the output was the same. Maybe
 there's something else that finch sets up that's messing with things?
 #include <stdio.h>
 #include <locale.h>
 #include <glib.h>
 main(int argc, char **argv) {
         int i;
         char n[] = ñ";
         gchar *result;
         setlocale (LC_ALL, "");
         result = g_locale_to_utf8(n, -1, NULL, NULL, NULL);
         for (i = 0; result[i]; i++)
                 printf("%02x\n", (unsigned char)result[i]);
         return 0;
