I confirmed the bug.  The problem is that
unibyte_char_to_multibyte now always returns an eight-bit

Now `charset_unibyte' is always 0 (i.e. the same as
`charset_ascii').  So, unibyte->multibyte conversion always
results in an eight-bit multibyte character.

To fix the above problem, I propose these changes for 23.1
and the trunk.

(1) Fix all codes accessing charset_unibyte
(e.g. Funibyte_char_to_multibyte) not to refer to it.

(2) Setup charset_unibyte correctly in Fset_charset_priority.

(3) Fix x_produce_glyphs to do DECODE_CHAR (charset_unibyte,
    it->c) instead of unibyte_char_to_multibyte (it->c).

Those changes are surely very safe.
