Incorrect (non-UTF-8) character tag's name and slug are handled in different way: name is truncated on 1st such character, and in slug they are just removed (no truncation). WP should handle both in the same way - drop invalid characters, instead of truncation.
I found this issue recently. One of the Polish programs for adding posts to the Wordpresses does not encode tags in UTF-8 - it left them in ISO-8859-2. I notified author of this bug. Unfortunately there are many copies around, so it may take a long time before everyone upgrade.
