Okay, guess I was wrong. I know much more about emacs char encoding now.

I try now to reproduce the problem (if it appears again)... Maybe it was emacs-snapshot (v 23) which caused the problems... I changed back to 22.

Even pasting utf-8 text to latin1 -buffer keeps the buffer encoding. Good!

Hopefully the problem does not reoccur when I'm very busy working :D
