Thank you for the bug report, but I can't reproduce that
bug.  Could you give me the following information?

o Can you reproduce the bug when you start Emacs with "-q

o What do you mean by `non-ASCII characters'?   Does't it
  contain non-Latin-1 characters?

o How do you type (or insert) those non-ASCII characters?

o Does Emacs also asks coding system on saving that mail
  buffer into a file?

o Please show me the contents of *Warning* buffer shown when
  Emacs asks you to select a coding system.

o How do you create that mail buffer?  By typing C-x m, from
  RMAIL, from Gnus, or else?

o What is the actual value of `buffer-file-coding-system'
  when you don't setup that mail-mode-hook.

o What is the value of `mail-user-agent'?

o What is the value of `default-sendmail-coding-system'?
