On Windows with non-UTF codepage, startup crash if data path has non-ASCII characters. Causes wallet startup error. #1402

On Windows OS with non-UTF code page (e.g. Hungarian language Windows), paths with non-ASCII chars seem to cause a crash at startup. The MDB library does not handle this case correctly, cannot open the DB files, and this error is not handled well within the node. It results in some NULL pointer access.

Can be reproduced with (on a Windows with non-UTF code page):
rai_node.exe --data_path "c:\Temp\józsef" --debug_block_count

Can be solved in LMDB.
