I believe the function "at fault" is uudecode-decode-region, although
personally I think the problem is much deeper, in the implicit use of
unibyte-char-to-multibyte in `insert'.

But independently from whether we fix it or not, I believe that making the
buffer unibyte is the right thing to do since it will only ever contain
bytes, and never chars: using a multibyte buffer here is inefficient and is
asking for trouble.
