Doesn't it also tell you which character causes this question?  I
thought it would say something like "the following characters can't be
represented in the latin-1 coding system, please choose a safe
encoding".  And then it should show you a list of problematic
characters.

How about searching for those in the buffer?

To reproduce the problem, you can type M-x view-hello-file RET and
then copy-and-paste some non-latin-1 stuff into a previously latin-1
file, then try to save it.  Then the same thing should happen.

Does this in fact happen?
