It looks like the problem is that the process filter function,
term-emulate-terminal, receives the output in chunks of 4096 bytes[1].  The
ш character is encoded in 2 bytes, which means it can be split across
chunks.

Is there a way to recognize incomplete decoding from lisp?  I can't see
any.


[1]: It's getting bytes rather than characters because in term-exec-1 we
have:

        ;; The process's output contains not just chars but also binary
        ;; escape codes, so we need to see the raw output.  We will have to
        ;; do the decoding by hand on the parts that are made of chars.
        (coding-system-for-read 'binary))
