IDLE uses the locale encoding for reading and writing config files. Default config files are ASCII-only, but if user config files contain non-ASCII data, it makes them non-portable and depending on the environment of IDLE.

Could they contain file paths? If yes, then not all file paths can be saved.

In any case it is better to use a fixed encoding for config files (ASCII or UTF-8).
