I had the same problem. As far as I know, this should be fixed in 0.12 
release. Now I use unstable GIT snapshot from 0.12 branch, and it works fine 
for me.

If you would like to try it, go there - 
http://elinks.or.cz/download.html and grab the snapshot, build it and then, 
go Setup => Character set => Unicode UTF-8.  Hope it helps.
