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.
