allout's use of pgg for encryption doesn't provide for non-ascii text,

cluefulness.  can anyone help me solve the problem posed below?

i should add, allout uses a temporary buffer where it encrypts and
decrypts the target text, and i tried setting
buffer-file-coding-system in the temporary buffer to that of the
original buffer.  that doesn't seem to help.
