yes, that fixes it.

Aren't these two ways of doing the same thing (make-char and aset in
a loop) ?

Emacs 20 used the second form. In 21.1.1 this has been changed
to the first form and with this patch you do both.

Since the first form looks cleaner, shouldn't we try to make
it work without the user having to change the coding system for keyboard
input (or else tell the user to do C-x RET k TAB ...) ?
