Indeed, it's not valid any more.
It should probably try something like

  (aref (decode-coding-string (unibyte-string char) locale-coding-system) 0)

instead, tho I'd argue that we should drop this feature and insert the
corresponding Unicode char instead (which would give the latin-1
equivalent as well).
