i don't quite understand how this could be a bug. I rechecked the mentioned
helpfiles and the actual encoding of my vim files. It says vim will get the
encoding from $LANG which it did, setting it to utf8 (fileencoding is also set
to utf8). 

Now if i understand Chris correctly, setting fenc to latin1 whereas
leaving enc as utf8 should solve the problem. That didn't work for me.
Therefore i don't see a vim configuration issue here.
