I'm not sure I understand how this helps.

He is sending UTF-8, and that's stimulating the bug. So recoding all
commit messages as UTF-8 isn't going to help, right?

But anyway, how are we going to "recode" commit messages to UTF-8, if
we don't know what encoding they're coming from? And what format are
you storing them in in the revision property? (i.e., What
circumstances are included in "when you want to look at them"?)
