I've tested this with snap #7 (0701.3) which has anaconda-13.21.56-1.el6.

Booted with lang=cs_CZ parameter and performed the install in text mode. I didn't see any garbled characters, text output was looking correct. See attached screenshot which shows the fix (compare to previous screenshot). 

Moving to VERIFIED.
