Actually - your question made me think about this
some more and I think I can easily simplify this - due
to the fact that no encoding with a length > 1 can
contain invalid characters (which are all ASCII < 0x80).
So here is the fix I'd like to commit to master, and
then I'll create a bug and back-port for 4.1.0, 4.0.next
Please re-review (sorry :-).
