      (set-language-environment "Latin-1")
      (byte-compile-file "~/test1.el")
      (set-language-environment "Japanese")
      (byte-compile-file "~/test2.el"))

    Although the source files are exactly the same, the
    resulting test1.elc contains a string of two Latin-1
    characters whereas the test2.elc contains a string of single
    Japanese character.

Is the difference due solely to the choice of coding system for
decoding the file?  That heuristic choice of coding system depends on
lots of things, but Lisp files can prevent variation by specifying

When the file does that, does eliminate the problem?

Anyway, is the specific problem I asked you to look at a matter of
choice of coding system?  (I don't know the details, since I don't
know what that variable does--I just know it relates to Mule.)
