Enable (partially) to work under non-ASCII path on Windows. #483
Consider building under virtual environments made by venv which contains non-ASCII characters.
Especially, the default user name often contains that characters under non-English mode Windows. That means the full path of "Documents" or "Desktop" etc. possibly be contain such characters.
In fact, due to using imagehlp.h functions, this is partial solution. For example, under en-US environment, this patch affects nothing. Another example, when using Japanese mode Windows and using characters that is not included cp932, this patch would help none.
But this patch would much better user experience, because at least they can use their native characters.
