This is very old info.  The emacs-unicode-2 branch was merged with the
mainline when Emacs 23.1 was released.

process-send-string _encodes_ the string, it does not send the
internal representation of the string in the buffer.  Using
process-send-string is like writing the string to a disk file: Emacs
encodes it before sending or writing.

Therefore, buffer-file-coding-system _does_ affect what is being sent.

I'm closing this non-bug.
