The alpm_list_free() bit is confusing here (and doesn't really make
sense); but the gist of what you were getting at is the widths of the
headers don't line up when they are translated and are formed with
multibyte characters.

This is something we did discover but hadn't fixed yet; expect a fix in 4.0.1.
