bug#5050: 23.1; efiff: Displaying bytes instead of characters in message

From: Sebastian Rose
Subject: bug#5050: 23.1; efiff: Displaying bytes instead of characters in messages
Date: Thu, 26 Nov 2009 21:13:34 +0100
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.1 (gnu/linux)

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

If I do

  M-x ediff-files RET

and choose binary files, e.g. x.png and x.jpg, this is, what I see in
the `*ediff*' buffer (no indentation): 

  Bin\303\244rdateien /home/sebastian/x.png and /home/sebastian/x.jpg sind 

What I expect to see is:

  Binärdateien /home/sebastian/x.png and /home/sebastian/x.jpg sind verschieden.

What I'd prefer even more, would be `ediff' to load those two files two
different buffers, put those buffers in hexl-mode and diff them.

Before `ediff' does this, it should ask (maybe ask only, if the two
files or one of them exceeds a certain size).

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/local/share/emacs/23.1/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
