It seems this has been fixed some time since 0.11. I think we were setting
sys.argv with unicode values for scripts, but we've since backtracked on

You could simply ignore the warning until IPython 0.12 is out. If that's
not possible, you could run IPython from git, or track down the relevant
code and encode sys.argv back to 8-bit strings.
