hunting a bug which seems to occur around `kill-new',

see the following bug-sourcing lines in

x-win.el, line 1256

;; ICCCM says cut buffer always contain ISO-Latin-1
(encode-coding-string text 'iso-latin-1))

IMHO that recipe can't be valid yet.

It is. Remeber that cut buffers are deprecated and has been for a long time. Selections have replaced them. If you look at the code in question, selections come after cut-buffer handling and there no translation takes place. I don't think anybody would notice if Emacs removed all cut-buffer code.
