I also have the same problem with "file://" in
In earlier versions (1.1.11) avoided by commenting out line: 
client->didReceiveResponse(handle, response)
in: WebCore/platform/network/soup/ResourceHandleSoup.cpp
then "file://" load local html files but ignoring charset ie. rendering 
all files iso8859-1.
Hoped it will be fixed by now:-(

Seeing some reference to mime-database but can figure it out.

GTKLauncher compiled on Linux 64bit works ok, only the win32 version 
cross-compiled with mingw32 have this problem.
