Shouldn't this issue be solved for Python  3.7.5? Or do I have to manually apply the patch?

I have a windows 8.1 x64 PC whose hostname contains special characters. When creating a socket, the gethostbyaddr() method raises a UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byt 0xe1 in position 1.

Let me know if you need more information.
