And now I execute again 'yast' (so this is again the textmode version).
Here is are link to screenshots of what I get now (same windows of yast): (A sub-module)

The problem on these screenshots doesn't look like it's related to the
locale at all.
It's likely rather this I think:

In short, recent ncurses versions use the RPT control sequence to repeat
characters when $TERM is set to "xterm".
But older konsole versions didn't support that.

As a workaround, set TERM to e.g. "konsole" or "linux", you can change that
in konsole's profile settings or manually with "export TERM=xxx".
Or use xterm, which supports RPT since something like 20 years...

If you're inclined to, it should be easy to backport the fix to older
konsole versions too:
