Do you have a specific example of a UTF-8 coded file that was detected
as UTF-8 in 23.0.90 and it is detected as Latin-1 in 23.0.91?

For example, I create a UTF-8 file (without UTF-8 byte-order-mark
"signature") with just the following contents:


And 23.0.90 also thinks it is Latin-1.

That said, if you need UTF-8 to be given more priority than Latin-1,
etc, you can use `set-coding-system-priority' in your .emacs.
