it seems emacs's crash backup files saved my utf-8 files in a
different encoding.

for example, if i'm editing x.txt, i have a line:

∑ something

then emacs will create a file #x.txt# while x.txt buffer has not been
If i have a crash, then opening the #x.txt# file the content is:

\234\364\370\261 something

since my files have lots of unicode, this renders those auto-save not
usable. (diff becomes useless because about every line is shown as
different due to the encoding)

is this a bug or am i missing some file encoding for this type of
Those normal backup x.txt~ files are fine.
