There are still problems with unicode commandlines. I think it is 
related to the problem in ticket #129 which was fixed in r2168.

It seems that before calling compile a string needs to be encoded using
the correct encoding.

Below are the results with/without the attached patch.

The patch also changes the ctypes implementation of _set_term_title to 
work properly with these strings as well (at least on my machine).

Since I'm not sure about the patch, I'm not that familiar with this part 
  of the code, I did not just go ahead and check it in. There might be a 
better more correct way of doing it, there are possibly more places that 
should be fixed as well.
