That's OK.

Besides the good points regarding charset below, I still need to
search&replace some things on the yanked region.

How can I test this?

I am using a pre-compiled GNU Emacs 24.5.1 (i686-pc-mingw32) of
2015-04-11 on LEG570.

Yes, I'd prefer when Emacs yanks the text in the correct charset
which it doesn't at my side.

Can somebody confirm this wrong behaviour?

How can I help?

All in all, one of the most disturbing things today is the definitive
fact that the NSA, GCHQ, and many more government organizations are
massively terrorizing the freedom of us and the next generations.
