According to the ID3 standard located at
http://www.id3.org/id3v2.4.0-structure.txt a tag marked as "ISO-8859-1" really
means "ISO-8859-1" and not "current locale".

In the case of ID3v1 the locale was never specified, so GStreamer uses the
hackish approach of looking at the locale.
Note that this often fails however, because modern Linux distributions use UTF-8
by default.

Which taggers do produce these broken files?
