It's set to mule-utf-8.  In the meantime I converted all file names to
UTF-8; now, Emacs works as expected (name are properly decoded and dired
is able to work on them).  Then I added another ISO-8859-1
encoded file name and all the UTF-8 encoded names are displayed wrongly:

"Nürnberg" is ISO-8859-1 encoded.

Point taken.  Thanks for helping to track down the issue.  I hope my
reports are helpful.
