You could try using bin/withlist to set the value of the welcome_msg
string.  As the mailman user:

$ bin/withlist -l mylist
>>> print m.welcome_msg

>>> m.welcome_msg = '''This is the new welcome text
... that will be prepended to the message sent to
... new subscribers.'''
>>> m.Save()
>>> {ctrl-d}

But I am suspicious that the encoding might be occurring on the
way out rather than the way in.  Please try.  :-)
