Back when the English-language Wikipedia used Windows-1252,
people used to create redirects to articles with non-ASCII titles
from the UTF-8-interpreted-as-Windows-1252 title.  These were all
made obsolete by the transition to UTF-8 but not cleared away
until several years later.

Circa 2008, I was experimenting with automatic detection of these
using a database dump as input, and Muvrarášša was one of the very few
false positives that came up.  (I never finished this project.)
