But none of them is what I suggested...

But none of that clears up the situation in any way...  They are just
random trials, nothing more.

Please try my suggestions.  Alternatively, send the offending file(s)
as binary attachments (preferably base64-encoded), and someone will
figure out what's wrong.

In any case, the fact that Emacs thinks the file is encoded
raw-text-unix indicates that there are some bytes in the file that
don't belong to ISO-8859.  Perhaps that clue will help you solve the
problem (you can use hexl-find-file to see the raw bytes in the file).
