What do you get if you say

  C-x RET X raw-text RET

before pasting?  Please tell what characters are pasted into the Emacs
buffer in this case.

Also, if you can find some tool that will show you the contents of the
X selection buffer after you cut/copy from a gtk2 application, please
tell what does that tool show.  Perhaps by looking at the contents of
the selection buffer we will be able to guess what kind of encoding is
used.

I'm also slightly confused by the fact that someone told in this
thread they have no problems pasting from Mozilla.  Could it be
something in the setup of your system?  Does it help to invoke Emacs
with "emacs -q --no-site-file"?
