Nice. I suggest you report this bug, and meanwhile try to replace tla
with Bazaar version 1.0. (The two are mostly compatible. I sometimes
use baz myself, and I am planning to switch over at some point. I
don't follow tla/baz/bzr development much.)

I don't recall any multi-tty changes to the customization code, so
this was likely caused by some bug in the trunk.

Well, it could be that Emacs failed to interpret your locale settings,
or the terminal device was in a bad state. Hard to say. Did you try
to explicitly set up an input coding system with `C-x RET k'?
