If just tried this to check if the problem still persists and couldn't
reproduce it.

Then I recognized what you actually did and noticed that this simply can't
work: you use the English interface, disabled utf and entered a Chinese
string. How should that work?
If you use the English interface, all data is expected to be entered in
iso-8859-1. If your browser allows you to enter different characters, it is
broken. The result you see is the conversion of you Chinese string from
iso-8859-1 to big-5 and back to iso-8859-1. No wonder it looks weird.

Either enable utf support (I'll do this globally anyway soon) or enter
Chinese strings with the Chinese interface.
