Yup, same here.  So it's something more complex than this.

All I know is that in my .emacs, if I had this:

(set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8)
(set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8)
(load-library "man")

it'd blow up.

But if I instead moved the load first:

(load-library "man")
(set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8)
(set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8)

it worked ok.

I don't know how to simulate that from emacs -Q.
