There was a problem in the mail. Looking into it says:

Content-Type: text/x-patch; name="felix.patch"; charset=iso-8859-1
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
Content-Disposition: attachment;
 X-Mime-Autoconverted: from 8bit to quoted-printable by courier 0.68.2

Thunderbird fault, it converted it to latin-1 before sending:D

Dick should try to put it in a zip or something to force 'as-is'
transmission by the mailer. Or otherwise find a way to coerce
thunderbird to use utf-8
