[New-bugs-announce] [issue39126] Some characters confuse the editor

dmaxime report at bugs.python.org

New submission from dmaxime <dmaxime at hotmail.it>:

>>> b'\xf0\x9f\x98\x86'.decode('utf8')
>>> '😆'.encode('utf8')

...now if you write '😆'.encode() then you move the cursor between the brackets and type "'utf8'" you will have this result while the cursor remains in the brackets:

>>> '😆'.encode()''8ftu
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

I've attached a video that shows this behavior.
Thanks for your attention. Cheers.
