Fedora 7 has popt delivered with rpm, so it's an old popt version which
never saw your changes. And all popt packages I officially prepared for
Fedora 8 are currently undoing your changes per patch to avoid really any
regression for the Fedora users.

My terminal emulator has the correct locales - same when connecting via SSH
to that machine e.g. using PuTTY and Windows :)

If you want to reproduce that, you could take the srpm popt-1.13-1 package
in testing for Fedora 8, rip my patch out, rebuild and install it. Then you
should see what I'm seeing. And what I'm seeing is no typical ISO-8859-1(5)
vs. UTF-8 problem, I know them already.
