I had "set ttycharset=utf8" in .mailrc and when presented with Alexey's
patch heirloom-mailx said "Failed to create encoded message: Invalid or
incomplete multibyte or wide character".

After removing that line from .mailrc, hairloom-mailx did the offending

Adding "set ttycharset=iso8859-1" to .mailrc permits Alexey's patch to
go through as-is.  But I assume it has broken something else :(
