This is about the problem with emacs 22, correct?  Could you please
send this again as attachement: the line wraps corrupted the code a
little.  This would be easier to me than fixing it manually.

Yes, but what?  The value of buffer-file-coding-system stays the same
(raw-text-unix), whatever method to load a file I choose.

here it is (emacs 21.4.1):

C-x RET l       set-language-environment
C-x RET c       universal-coding-system-argument
C-x RET C-\     set-input-method
C-x RET X       set-next-selection-coding-system
C-x RET x       set-selection-coding-system
C-x RET p       set-buffer-process-coding-system
C-x RET k       set-keyboard-coding-system
C-x RET t       set-terminal-coding-system
C-x RET f       set-buffer-file-coding-system

(describe-function revert-buffer-with-coding-system)
--> Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-variable 
revert-buffer-with-coding-system)


Seems your emacs is better than mine ...

address@hidden ~ $ locale
LANG=de_DE.UTF-8
LC_CTYPE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE=POSIX
LC_MONETARY="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="de_DE.UTF-8"

LC_ADDRESS="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=


Starting emacs with "LANG= emacs" does not change anything.
