The attached patch fixes the issue for me. It all comes down to 
extractLine() mixing display characters and bytes, failing to account 
for multi-byte characters. AFAICT, upstream's new code for 2.6.0[1] is 
not affected by this bug.

Please consider applying the fix and backporting it to a buster stable 
release, as UTF-8 support has been a long-term release goal.
