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 corruption. Adding "set ttycharset=iso8859-1" to .mailrc permits Alexey's patch to go through as-is.

That's all fixed, afaik.
