encounter an encoding bug, which I've seen years
ago and reported already, but didn't occur with Emacs

when opening a file containing non-ascii chars, german
umlauts etc., these aren't shown as glyphs but
as numbers.

  '(("Infinity" "∞" nil 0)
    ("alpha" "α" nil 2)
    ("beta" "β" nil 1)
    ("gamma" "γ" nil 1)
    ("theta" "θ" nil 0)))

I see  ("alpha" "\316\261" nil 2)

for example.

May send a screenshot if useful.

Curious: if the chars-as-numbers code is pasted here in this mail,
glyphs are displayed correctly.

As the only thing I remember is editing the file with

GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.0) of 2010-08-28

assume the bug comes from there.

Sorry, not being able to truck down further the issue.
