Clearly it's wrong: assuming that his language environment is setup so
that his preferred coding-system is latin-2, when either of latin-1,
latin-2 or latin-9 can be used to encode the region, latin-2 should
be chosen.

Pavel does the same thing happen when writing a file ?
E.g. starting with an empty file, enter your name, save
the file and check the coding-system used for writing.
