Hacketyhack crashes when I save a script just containing some letters, some of them being ä, ö or ü, and then restart hacketyhack.

Error is invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII

I believe it shouldn't crash (then maybe a shoes issue) or at least hacketyhack should catch this and load anyway but without the compromised script.

And I thought that my code messed things up :-/

Hey I can't copy from the shoes error console so I made a screenshot. Encoding seems to be US-ASCII although my system encoding and everything is imo correctly set to UTF-8.

I got the error by creating a script simply containing


and saving it with the name ae - then I restarted hacketyhack, that's the error you see. hacketyhack is current Master version and shoes is current development version (both freshly pulled from upstream):

No worries. The reproducibility is the big thing. Thanks.
