It looks like this problem was already fixed by patch 6.1.029. The code
just before the line you changed now looks like this:
if (converted && (enc_utf8 || STRCMP(p_enc, "latin1") == 0))
It used to be:
if (converted && (enc_utf8 || !has_mbyte))
Give that change a try, I guess it fixes your problem.
