Thank you for looking into this. I tested this now again on a different
machine, but also running GNU/Linux (Ubuntu 8.10), with the same
result. FWIW, I think I could track down this issue to the following
commit for src/coding.c:
date: 2009-02-09 01:42:37 +0100; author: handa; state: Exp; lines: +1 -1;
(detect_coding_charset): Fix previous change.
With revision 1.412 of coding.c, the error disappears for me.
