An Emacs (21.3.50) started this way

    LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 emacs

Sorry for my private terminology.

> Also, what is your value of file-name-coding-system?

file-name-coding-system's value is nil

*Coding system for encoding file names.
If it is nil, `default-file-name-coding-system' (which see) is used.

I did not set it.

Additional remark (I'll file a more detailed report later, if the
problem persists):

Some days before I observed that Emacs "auto-corrects" broken .po
files; the broken files are declared as UTF-8 and containing those
codes and additionally some iso-8859-1 got mixed in by accident.  Emacs
displays those wrong characters "correctly" -- this is somehow
"user-friendly" but nervertheless highly confusing.  At least please
add a special background to those auto-corrected characters.

Is it only me who observed such a behavior?  If this is desired
behavior please point me to the documentation of this feature.

I think both problems are related.
