When I open any binary file with Emacs in console mode (emacs -nw) the display gets corrupted (the menu and parts of the mode line disappears). In GUI mode it works as expected. I use GNU Emacs version 21.4.1 and gnome-terminal 2.16.1 under Ubuntu 6.10.

Any clues?

Try "M-x hexl-find-file RET", it is meant for editing binary files.

Works like a charm.

One thing I've noticed with `hexl-find-file' though is that read-only permission of a file is not respected (I'm able to edit a read-only binary file). This is not the case if I open the file in Emacs with GUI (and run `hexl-mode'). Is this a bug?
