New submission from Pierre LM <lemarre at eifer.org>:

Hi, I have tried the official binaries of pypy3 2.1b1 on Windows 7 64bits. There
is a problem with the utf-8 encoding (code page 65001) in Powershell 2.0 and
cmd.exe. Please find herebelow a copy of the terminal:

PS C:\temp\pypy3-2.1-beta1-win32> chcp 1252
Aktive Codepage: 1252.
PS C:\temp\pypy3-2.1-beta1-win32> .\pypy.exe
Python 3.2.3 (d63636b30cc0, Jul 30 2013, 07:02:44)
[PyPy 2.1.0-beta1 with MSC v.1500 32 bit] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
And now for something completely different: ``"3 + 3 = 8" - Anto in the JIT
>>>> exit()
PS C:\temp\pypy3-2.1-beta1-win32> chcp 65001
Aktive Codepage: 65001.
PS C:\temp\pypy3-2.1-beta1-win32> .\pypy.exe
