IIRC, you need to make the priority of utf-8 higher for this to
happen.  Unless that's changed in the current CVS, try evaluating the
following expression:

  (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8)

before you visit a utf-8 encoded file, and see if that helps.  I think
this is because the encoding detection routines cannot distinguish
between Latin-n and utf encoding without some help.

Apologies if the current code base no longer works as I remember.
