Those blasted \201 characters

Every accented character received in mail from certain senders get
preceded by the dreaded \201 character. 

I think this happened after I killed an ancient line with

(standard-display-european 1)

to get rid of a UTF8 display problem. It appears to be happening in
the nnmail step - i.e. there are no \201's in $MAIL, but they are
there in ~/Mail/misc/mail/12345.  

I tried reinstating the above line, which reintroduced the UTF8
problem, but didn't cure the \201 thing... (well, maybe I didn't check
on newly arrived mail, need to recheck).

Any clues?
