Hey devs,

Just ran into this bug report: 

Most likely, it is an issue of non-encodable char in its path (stupid 

Anyway, searching a bit around, I found PYTHONIOENCODING envvar 
which is supposed to force encoding of stdXXX streams. Are we already 
using this, or wouldn't it work in our case? Else, setting it to 
something like "utf-8:replace" could save us some issues under windows...
