unicode byte order mark in hexl-mode

Hello,

When viewing an excel2000 file (saved in unicode format) in hexl-mode I
see:

00000000: 81ff 81fe 6600 6f00 6f00 0900 6100 0a20  ....f.o.o...a.. 

while the file truly starts with the byte order mark 'fffe'. I checked
it with a C-program and vi. Emacs is also confused about the length of
the file. You cannot move the cursor to the last two bytes.

I use emacs 20.7.1. I have not checked whether this is fixed in emacs
21.1 (I have to keep my transfer rate low). See the attachment for an
example file.

with best regards,
