This has always worked for me. I don't think there is a bug but there is
a residual mystery:

Why aren't the following exactly synonymous (as the descriptions would
lead us to believe):

C-x RET c latin-1 RET C-x C-f
C-x RET f latin-1 RET

I've found that the second one doesn't always work.

Btw, the coding cookie is:

;; -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

in first line or first eight lines of file, I can't remember which.
