The problem is that the other settings are still for
en_US. You need to unset all other variables, in particular

unset LC_CTYPE

Alternatively, set all other LC_ variables to zh_CN.GB2312
as well.

It is a very bad style of your Linux distribution to set
all LC_ variables explicitly - they should be set only if
one needs to override LANG for a specific setting.
