New issue 2638: pypy3 UnicodeDecodeError on start interactive shell



I pypy3 on my Archbox to use it. Its amazing! 
But for me it creates an trace at running pypy3 from bash. (but it still opens, and runs, so no crash at all). I mark is as minor since the application is still runnable.
here is the trace trance (first line is my bashprompt mabye it has problems with the "✓" somehow?):
16:38 [user at host~] ✓$ pypy3
Python 3.5.3 (a37ecfe5f142bc971a86d17305cc5d1d70abec64, Jun 12 2017, 16:41:39)

    (result, consumed) = self._buffer_decode(data, self.errors, final)

And now for something completely different: ``happy PyPy's year 2010!''
