french keyboard / encoded-kbd-mode

There is a problem with reducing keyboard events with certain modifiers.
E.g. in the Carbon port, set mac-option-modifier to 'meta and select a french keyboard layout.
Here, the - key (US keyboard) is normally ).

)               ->  )
S-)             ->  °   (degree sign - correct)
Opt-)   ->  M-) (correct)
S-Opt-)         ->  M-¡   (incorrect, should be M-°)

I had a look at the code, but couldn't immediately make out the culprit.

Yamamoto M. pointed out that...

(encode-coding-string "¡" 'iso-8859-1)
=> "\241"
(encode-coding-string "°" 'mac-roman)
=> "\241"

When encoded-kbd-mode is turned off, Opt-) gives the incorrect ¡.

In a similar context:

The code of ¤(0xA4) corresponds to that of § in mac-roman encoding.
So it seems that back-translation itself does work, but
encoded-kbd-mode does not translate a key input with modifiers.

If I can help debug this in some way, please let me know.
