I think the patch is incorrect. It shouldn't do any encoding conversion, but perform the expanding completely in Unicode strings.

For 2.x, I recommend to close this as "won't fix". Expanding a Unicode strings is just not supported. If it was supported, it should be supported correctly, i.e. allowing both environment variable names and environment variable values to have non-ASCII characters in them, and, on Windows, even non-MBCS characters.
