Works for me. Play with the Terminal -> Keyboard window in Putty

$ echo $TERM
does return linux, doesn't it?

Which emacs are you using: GNU or Xemacs?

Are you using X tunnelling, or are you running emacs in text mode?

Works for me, too.

This shouldn't afect anything, but Window -> Translation: Received
data... is set to UTF-8, isn't it?

Which font are you using? I find Courier New good.

At a guess, I'd say that the terminal emulation is screwed up somewhere.

Hope this helps,
