    I assume it did so because the buffer contained "invalid" code
points.  Remember that loading raw-text then converting to multibyte can
(I believe) produce a buffer with essentially arbitrary bytes modulo no
unaccompanied continuation bytes.  Presumably, the result can be
considered invalid by emacs-mule.
