[docs] [issue13561] os.listdir documentation should mention surrogateescape

Michael Foord report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Michael Foord <michael at voidspace.org.uk>:

Where os.listdir encounters undecodable bytes from the filesystem it uses the surrogateescape handler. As the resulting strings are invalid they can't be encoded without an errorhandler, and so can't be printed (for example).

This should be documented.
