Although 3.7.2 is the latest production release, it is, unfortunately, rather
old. We've been a bit slow in releasing 3.8. Are you able to build 3.8 from the
source repository and give it a try? I suspect it contains the fix for your
problem, which I believe to be a problem we fixed some time ago related to the
interpretation of extended characters in the font table of a frame buffer
console. Alternatively, you might try booting with the nofb (no frame buffer)
kernel parameter.
