In my setting (Python 3.6b1 on Windows), trying to prompt a non-ASCII character via input() results in mojibake. This is related to the recent fix of #1602 and so is Windows-specific.

>>> input("α")

The result corresponds to print("α".encode("utf-8").decode("cp852")). That cp852 the default terminal encoding in my locale.
