The test fails because

byte_str.decode('ascii', 'surragateescape')

is not what ascii(byte_str) - returns when called from the commandline.

Assumption: since " check('utf8', [arg_utf8])" succeeds I assume the parsing of the command-line is correct.

DETAILS
>>> arg = 'h\xe9\u20ac'.encode('utf-8')
>>> arg
b'h\xc3\xa9\xe2\x82\xac'

>>> arg.decode('ascii', 'surrogateescape')
'h\udcc3\udca9\udce2\udc82\udcac'


I am having a difficult time getting the syntax correct for all the "escapes", so I added a print statement in the check routine:

test_cmd_line (test.test_utf8_mode.UTF8ModeTests) ...
code:import locale, sys; print("%s:%s" % (locale.getpreferredencoding(), ascii(sys.argv[1:]))) arg:b'h\xc3\xa9\xe2\x82\xac'
out:UTF-8:['h\xe9\u20ac']

code:import locale, sys; print("%s:%s" % (locale.getpreferredencoding(), ascii(sys.argv[1:]))) arg:b'h\xc3\xa9\xe2\x82\xac'
out:ISO8859-1:['h\xc3\xa9\xe2\x82\xac']

test code with my debug statement (to generate above):

    def test_cmd_line(self):
        arg = 'h\xe9\u20ac'.encode('utf-8')
        arg_utf8 = arg.decode('utf-8')
        arg_ascii = arg.decode('ascii', 'surrogateescape')
        code = 'import locale, sys; print("%s:%s" % (locale.getpreferredencoding(), ascii(sys.argv[1:])))'

        def check(utf8_opt, expected, **kw):
            out = self.get_output('-X', utf8_opt, '-c', code, arg, **kw)
            print("\ncode:%s arg:%s\nout:%s" % (code, arg, out))
            args = out.partition(':')[2].rstrip()
            self.assertEqual(args, ascii(expected), out)

        check('utf8', [arg_utf8])
        if sys.platform == 'darwin' or support.is_android:
            c_arg = arg_utf8
        else:
            c_arg = arg_ascii
        check('utf8=0', [c_arg], LC_ALL='C')

So the first check succeeds:

        check('utf8', [arg_utf8])

But the second does not:

FAIL: test_cmd_line (test.test_utf8_mode.UTF8ModeTests)

I tried saying the "expected" is arg, but arg is still a byte object, the cmd_line result is not (printed as such).
