This is actually not an issue.
Closing as invalid.

When running the test suite on Windows our sources are read with the system code page. All our source code is in UTF-8 however. If tests include non-ASCII characters they are incorrectly interpreted (see e.g. bug #53873).

We could solve this by temporarily changing to '__mfile_encoding__ ("utf-8")' while running the test suite.
