So this bug report is purely about the return value of
`url-unhex-string'? It sounded at the beginning that url.el had
problems fetching something.
If this is just about `url-unhex-string', the obvious solution would be
to add a CODING-SYSTEM parameter to that function.
And please don't keep removing the debbugs address from the Cc list.
