idle6.0 german umlauts (ascii > 128 Exception)

No, there is no contradiction. The first experiment was in idle the second
was in a dosshell.

I have tried it again (= restarted idle): it happend again. The trace says
it is in:

  File "c:\python20\lib\codeop.py", line 61, in compile_command
    code = compile(source, filename, symbol)
UnicodeError: ASCII encoding error: ordinal not in range(128)

codeop.py seems to be the problem.

What can I do? It is very important, cause I just started "mission python"
at my company (which is a very big public employee in germany) and one
argument was idle. (ok a small one, but it is difficult to get people on
other (better) ways!)
