Now I understand better.

(1) I was unable to do because I customizations that try to prevent
    window splitting -- so when this error happens, the minibuffer
    and the warning message are the only two buffers visible.

(2) I was unable to see because I have customized nearly all faces,
    so perhaps the underlining got lost.

We could improve Emacs by either fixing the message -- eg. "You can
abort the choice of a coding system using \\[keyboard-quit\\], and
use mouse-2 or RET on the problematic character listed above to go to
the correct position.

What do you think?
