A nuissance to be sure (and I'm looking into if it can be fixed), but
couldn't scsh easily avoid passing non-ASCII characters in cases where

I don't think OpenBSD's regex library cares about locale. (I'd be
interested to hear if anyone can confirm that (regexp-search (rx
printing) "foo") works with scsh 0.6.7 on FreeBSD or NetBSD.)

I tried setting a breakpoint on regcomp and seeing what string scsh
passes to the regex library, and scsh 0.6.7 passes the string
mentioned in my original post, while scsh 0.6.2 passes "[\t-\r -~]".
Any ideas why this might have changed?
