fixed this.
in the terminal window i went to 'edit' then 'profile preferences' and unchecked 'use the system fixed width font'.
sorted. no idea why it should display text like that but there you go.

I found a solution in this page http://forum.ubuntu.org.cn/viewtopic.php?f=103&t=355684 (in Chinese)

install wqy-microhei>> Advanced Settings >>Font>>Monospace font >> selects "文泉驿微米黑"
