quail vs. -nw and the modeline

User-agent: Gnus/5.090008 (Oort Gnus v0.08) Emacs/21.2 (i386-pc-linux-gnu)

I do
$ emacs --no-site-file -q
then C-\ and in the modeline I see the very nice correct Chinese characters 
"pin1 fu2"
However I add -nw
$ emacs --no-site-file -q -nw
and type C-\ and instead in the modeline I see jie2, meaning eyelash.
$ mmencode -q|tr -d = #on the two strings
Which shows that the string got mangled in the modeline, with BF7B
extracted and becoming B7FB. 

Furthermore, doing C-\ C-\ C-\ C-\... in emacs -nw makes the window go
up as a miscalculated modeline length is causing wrapping and leaving
modeline after modeline piling up at the bottom of the screen until
you hit C-l.

But you had better hit C-l when you have toggled off
toggle-input-method, or else it repaints the screen, then wraps,
jolting the whole window up.
