What is the actual bug that this causes?  I didn't see any mention of
incorrect characters or fonts being displayed, or characters not
being displayed at all as a result of this change in behavior.
AFAIK the only change in behavior that this change causes is that
Emacs now displays latin-9 and mule-unicode-* characters out of the
box on Windows, whereas in 21.1 it was necessary to change
w32-charset-info-alist yourself (which also had the side effect of
changing the charset returned by w32-select-font for "Western" fonts).
