Oh, subprocess doesn't support passing bytes arguments to a program anymore (since Python 3.0).
http://bugs.python.org/issue4036#msg100376

So it's better to use TESTFN_NONASCII instead for this test ;-) It confirms that we need two constants depending on the context. It dependson the platform and how the data is read/written: sometimes undecodable characters are supported on any platform (ex: base64 encoder), sometimes undecodable characters are not supported (ex: distutils expects valid metadata), sometimes it depends on the platform (ex: this test).
