It's perhaps because of the upgrade of GTK+ and Pango.

I'm not keen on remembering the encoding setting in the main menu,
because it "overwrites" the message's charset declaration. This
prevents users from viewing messages whose charsets are incompatible
with the specified encoding (ex. you can't see UTF-8 messages correctly
when Windows-1252 is specified).
