> Oh, sorry. The patch applies without any problem, then I re-compile everything and run, and the same error happens. I re-compiled just now to make double sure.

I tested my patch on Windows. I called my computer héça (3 non-ASCII letters!). Without the patch, I get the UTF-8 decoding error, as expected. With the patch, it gets the nice "héça" Unicode string, correctly decoded. I tested socket.getfqdn().

My patch will not fix all your issues at once :-) In the issue #26226, I saw at least 3 different bugs. But I'm now sure that my patch fixes a real bug, so I pushed it to Python 3.5 and default (3.6).

Thanks for the bug report Emanuel ;-)
