Apparently, you are using the interactive shell on Microsoft Windows. This will use the "OEM code page"; which one that is depends on the exact Windows regional version you are using.
You shouldn't decode the string with 'latin-1', but with sys.stdin.encoding. Alternatively, you should use Unicode string literals in Python in the first place.
In any case, Ezio is right: this is not a help forum, but a bug tracker.
