When you open bla.eclipse with Emacs, did you tell Emacs that it was a
UTF-8 encoded file?  That is, did you say

      C-x RET c utf-8 RET C-x C-f bla.eclipse

or did you use "C-x C-f" as usual?  If the latter, I'm guessing that
Emacs thought it was an ISO-8859 encoded file (because it cannot
easily distinguish between these 2 encodings), and thus your
subsequent C-x RET f had no effect at all.
