After a bit more time with the debugger:

 - from what I can tell the xtg import plugin correctly detects the declared encoding and does find
   the corrent QTextCodec for the encoding, so m_codec seems to be correct. But somehow the 
   actual text imported is garbled. 
 - If I import non-multibyte encoded text everything works as expected.
