This is mine, too aggressive use of purecopy.
auto-coding-regexp-alist needs to be changed like this:

(defcustom auto-coding-regexp-alist
  (mapcar (lambda (arg) (cons (purecopy (car arg)) (cdr arg)))
  '(("\\`BABYL OPTIONS:[ \t]*-\\*-[ \t]*rmail[ \t]*-\\*-"  . no-conversion)
[....]

I'll check it in when I get a chance.  If it's in your way, please feel
free to do it earlier.
