I'm running out of thoughts as to what's different about your
environment that would cause this breakage.  Your debugging steps should
roughly be:

All MIME::Entity bodies in RT should now, as of 4.2.7, be bytes and not
characters.  For the comment/correspond codepath, this is enforced by
RT::Interface::WebMakeMIMEEntity -- [1] called from [2].  Check that the
input to [1] is characters, and that the output from
->bodyhandle->as_string contains the UTF-8 encoding of those characters
-- i.e. no codepoints above 255, and the "UTF-8" flag should be off.

You will need to rack down where the UTF-8 flag of
->bodyhandle->as_string starts being on -- that is where your bug lies.
 The Devel::Peek module will likely be useful in your investigation.  If
you have cusomizations or extensions, start by disabling them and see if
that improves matters.
