I have reported the audacious-plugins' problem to upstream

http://bugs-meta.atheme.org/view.php?id=632

Here is the problem's description:
In audacious-plugins' current implementation, when saving MP3's tags, unicode is enabled unconditionally. In save_cb() function in http://svn.atheme.org/audacious-plugins/trunk/src/mpg123/fileinfo.c, [ ^] there are two function calls:
taglib_set_strings_unicode(1);
and
taglib_set_id3v2_default_text_encoding();
However, when reading MP3's tags, if chardet is enabled, unicode will be disabled. In fill_entries() function in the same file, there is a conditional compilation:
#ifdef USE_CHARDET
taglib_set_strings_unicode(FALSE);
#endif

This may not affect English only users. But for CJK users, this discrepancy
of dealing with chardet will lead to MP3's title and artist being rendered
as garbled characters.
