AFAIR, normal text mode doesn't support unicode rendering. Maybe you need to use VESA graphics mode (?) to see the unicode character set. IMO, its not a bug.

emails contain 'Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"' which helps email readers to properly detect and display the content properly. I see 'From: =?UTF-8?B?4KSuLuCkueCkvi7gpLjgpL4u4KSXLuCksA==?= <o.s.h.o at guruvision.com>' if I look at source of the email.

Useful search string:
grub unicode support
