Apologies if this has been reported before; I couldn#T find it on a
search but maybe I used the wrong search terms.

When I try to run a script that is contained in a directory whose path
contains non-ASCII characters (e. g. Umlauts), Python 3.0a4 crashes with
the following error message:

(Windows cmd console):
E:\Eigene Dateien\Klinikum\Qualit├Ątsmanagement\Qualit├Ątsbericht
Fatal Python error: no mem for sys.path insertion
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf8' codec can't decode bytes in position 33-35:
invalid data

Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Moving the script to a directory without Umlauts in the path "solves"
the problem.

Best regards,
