No, it's a feature: Emacs saves the auto-save files in the internal
encoding used within Emacs to represent non-ASCII characters.  This is
done to make sure buffers restored from the autosave files are always
identical to what their contents were at the moment of autosaving.

I'm not sure I understand the situation you are describing.  Please
elaborate more: what exactly did you type, and what did you see.

Which hardly adds anything useful to your bug report.  Thank you for
omitting it the next time.
