I'm not familiar with the tool, but that's not surprising.  The fundamental 
problem is that there is NO WAY for a tool to tell what encoding was used.  
The best a tool could do is try a whole bunch of decoders and disply the 
results from all of the ones that didn't fail.

I actually hacked a small Python script to do exactly that a week or so ago, 
I'll look to see if I still have it around -- later.  I'm late for a meeting 
right now.
