UnicodeDecodeError during startup #569
If I try to add a files to c.TerminalIPythonApp.exec_files in the config file I get a UnicodeDecodeError on startup if there is a non ascii character in my current path (see https://gist.github.com/1076426).
As far as I can tell it is because there is a call to os.getcwd on line 140 in utils/path.py. The issue goes away by changing to os.getcwdu. (Code on my getcwdu branch)
A search through the codebase reveals another 38 calls to os.getcwd
