I found an invalid UTF-8 sequence at 279th line.  It seems
that the file name on this line is in ISO-8859-1, not UTF-8.
Thus, Emacs failed to detect it as utf-8, and decoded it by

Perhaps the file Entries should be read by:

(let ((coding-system-for-read (or default-file-name-coding-system

But, that file also contains "date" string.  Does Emacs uses
that part of information too?  If so, how is it encoded?
Does it contain only ASCII characters?  Or, is it encoded in
users locale?  Are there any possibility that the encoding
of file name is different from the encoding of date string
in a normal situation?

As my knowlege about CVS (and CVS handling code of emacs) is
limitted, I'd like to ask some other person to fix this
problem.  Of course, I'll answer any Mule-related questions.
