SEO options spoil my meta tag chars encoding

My website is in Polish, all UTF-8. When I turn Atahualpa SEO options off, page titles show properly. As soon as I switch it on - Polish chars encoding goes wrong.
See screens attached.

Could you try a SEO plugin such as "All in one SEO" or "Headspace 2" and see if the same error occurs?

I emplyed All-in-One before. It solved the encoding problem, but blocked dynamic tags -> Keywords allocation, so I got rid of it. Headspace 2 looks nice. Tags are allocated, chars are encoded properly - I am going to use it. Of course, I will gladly take part in solving the problem anyway.

I'll look into Headspace 2 then to see what he's doing differently. Thanks for trying this out. WpSeo is also considered to be good if your very concerned about SEO

This only happens for category and search pages and the reason is that functions/bfa_meta_tags.php line 75 and 83 (Atahualpa 3.4.1) doesn't have a charset in htmlentities, which makes it revert back to iso-8859-1 instead of utf-8.

I changed the hardcoded lines to this to solve the problem temporary:
$bfa_ata_page_title = htmlentities(single_cat_title('', false),ENT_QUOTES,"UTF-8");
$bfa_ata_page_title = htmlentities(wp_specialchars($s),ENT_QUOTES,"UTF-8 );

Hope this change makes it to a later release.
