What I suggest is:

1) Restore login.conf and shell profile as it was
2) Test in X11 as it is more reliable than the console (no need to set
3) Run the command LC_CTYPE=ca_ES.ISO8859-15 more mail.test

Once you get the desired result, modify your environment or login class

I just  read Using Localization[1] again  in the handbook, but  I didn't
discover anything  obvious.  The  only case where  I can  reproduce your
result is:

LC_CTYPE=us-ascii more mail.test.
