Right, but it is more dramatic. I don't care so much about the
difference for the (short) Asian text, but I do care about the fact that
now the file seems to be ┬źdoomed┬╗ in the sense that the diff of each and
every new commit ends up in Chinese, that is the file is considered as
binary from now on and that is really bad.

Strange that nobody noticed that before.
I am not sure what to do with this file.
