I guess that the problem sneaked in with this commit:
I didn't try to revert it though.
But it seems that this patch added a new call for
safe_charset_converter() without a corresponding fix_fields().
My patch eliminates this disbalance.

Looks like a rarely used combination and it was not covered in mtr.
Btw, b96c196f1cd5d77e524cbf952539bdd33c65ffc1 doesn't have tests for
some reasons, neither has an MDEV.
Note, in case of literals it worked fine. Only subselects were affected.
Please suggest a good commit comment.
