I cannot reproduce this, either.  I took your buggy.mail, removed the
"X-Coding-system:" line, then typed "C-u g buggy.mail RET" inside an
RMAIL buffer.  The message was correctly decoded as EUC-JP.

Did you try to remove the "X-Coding-system:" header, and see if that
allows you to reproduce the problem?  If not, can you please try that?

Do you still have the original mailbox retrieved by pop3?  If so, can
you spot some differences between the original file and buggy.mail
you sent with your report?
