Problem with invalid characters when using notmuch-reply

I have a very confusing problem. When replying to a message containing special characters (read: non-ascii), they show up as mysteriously escaped characters, such as \345 (where the letter ä should be). When sending these replies, I get an error about my message containing non-printable characters. When these messages arrive, the special characters (even those I entered, that looked fine in the mail compose buffer) are garbled.
Everything works fine when composing a new message. The problem only appears when replying. The problem appeared quite recently, apparently out of nowhere. No emacs upgrade, no notmuch upgrade (as far as I can recall).
The problem is appears in both Emacs 23 and 24, and restart (neither of Emacs nor of my computer) doesn't help.
albin at hecate ~ % notmuch --version
albin at hecate ~ % locale
notmuch reply (on the command line) seems to work just fine.
Any pointers you can give me would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
