Thanks for the feedback, Jorgen.

What puzzles me about Peter's problem is that I don't get why the
--pylab switch should in any way affect the behavior related to
unicode/codepages...  Does anyone have an idea on this front?

Peter, could you test using

--pylab wx
--pylab gtk
--pylab tk
--pylab qt (if you have pyqt installed)

and let us know if there's any difference?  I wonder if the gui
toolkit is messing with stdin in any way.

I'm honestly shooting in the dark here, so if anyone has a better
idea, by all means speak up.
