Nothing has changed recently in the PEP 538 implementation itself, and both those builders were green last month:


The first failing debug build was which rearranged some parts of the startup sequence:

Similarly, the 3.7 builds started failing in, which made Py_Initialize work more closely to the way it worked in Python 3.6:

So given the output reported in the current build failures, my guess would be that something has gotten out of sequence in the code that has to handle re-encoding and decoding command line values and environment variables that have initially been decoded incorrectly (i.e. as surrogate escaped ASCII).
