Issue with console prompt

Recently a few of our servers have been experiencing very strange characters when connecting via conserver. It looks like this:

Ìoçiî iîcorrectäorîocè coîóole loçiî: äorîocè coîóole loçiî: äorîocè coîóole loçiî: [disconnect]

There is basically a 1 to 1 "translation", so "Ìoçiî" is "login", etc. I've tried playing around with the baud in conserver.cf, but that just
made it worse. This originally occurred on one server, but that server was cloned to another and now the new one has the same problem,
so it appears to be something on the server itself. Both are Solaris 10, and I compared /etc/inittab to a working system and the console
lines appeared to be identical:

smf::sysinit:/lib/svc/bin/svc.startd    >/dev/msglog 2<>/dev/msglog </dev/console

Any help on how to fix this would be appreciated.
