the locale is no longer stored in digikamrc, but in the database. you can 
get the current locale using:
sqlite3 /pathto/digikam3.db "SELECT * FROM Settings WHERE keyword='Locale';"

the utf-8 usage is internal to QString and that shouldn't affect the display. 
if your font has the glyph for the character, it will render correctly.

i'm trying to figure out where the breakage occured. can you try entering 
a new comment with non-ascii characters and see if it is rendered 
correctly? if it doesn't happen there, then the upgrade from the old to 
new database needs reworking.

which is a problem I can't reproduce and neither can the others. the logs 
you attached with the bugreport were not very enlightening. i will do a 
bit more digging later.
