The version on Gmane is Latin-1 encoded, the version in the GNU list
server archives (and most likely the version people subscribed directly
to the list rather than reading it via Gmane) is UTF-8 encoded.  For
both mails.

So it would seem that Gmane chooses to reencode attachments in Latin-1.
That's a rather serious blunder.
