But binary (-Kn) is one of them, and that should be fine for ISO-8859-1, 
shouldn't it?

OP, are you running on a Mac by any chance? Apple built Ruby for OSX 
with a non-standard configuration so that $KCODE="UTF8" by default. Try 
using:

ruby -e 'puts $KCODE'

If it says UTF8, then try running your script again with ruby -Kn
