                       (format "edit of %s's note re: %s"
                               (vm-su-full-name (car vm-message-pointer))
                               (vm-su-subject (car vm-message-pointer)))))

So I guess VM holds the message in its undecoded (external) format?
If so, it should do this:

                       (format "edit of %s's note re: %s"
                                 (vm-su-full-name (car vm-message-pointer))
                                 (vm-su-subject (car vm-message-pointer))

Quite what to use for SOMETHING depends on whether VM knows the
encoding of the message.  If it does, it should use that; otherwise
using `undecided' should DTRT in most cases.

But not in this case. The given string is not decoded right with undecided. detect-coding-string doesn't list iso-8859-8. I think choosing between iso-8859-x is difficult. Still, VM should know the coding used.
