I observed it too.

It seems that your patch is correct.  Actually, Emacs 22
used the similar method, but I forgot to implement that part
when I re-wrote find-coding-systems-region-internal.  :-(

One possible strategy is to check, at first, whether or not
the default coding system(s) used for encoding (usually
buffer-file-coding-system) can encode the text.

It was.  But, as we modified load_charset_map_from_file to
disable file-name-handlers a while ago, we don't need that
check anymore.  I just forgot to delete all those checks.
