Maybe I'm old.

I don't get it. VT100 support. Check. Good to go, right? What else do you want from your console?

Not good enough? Fire up emacs and console from there.

What more is there?

I'm supposing you never downloaded a file with foreign characters then. I have this problem in Gentoo a lot. I download two files with distinct names, but all I see in a file listing is "??????". I wouldn't say the console is horrid in FreeBSD, but it's outdated and small problems like that have been piling up over time.
