Hmm.  I suspect that that typo is fortunate rather than the source of a bug.  As far as I can see, if a message contains valid iso-2022 characters, it will always encode to ASCII successfully and therefore be given a content-transfer-encoding of 7bit.  If on the other hand it contains 8 bit characters, it should be marked as 8bit, even if it claims to be iso-2022.  (Well, actually it should throw an error, but that's a different bug.)

In other words, I think the correct thing to do is to delete that if test.

Do you have a case where the code produces incorrect behavior that your patch turns into correct behavior?
