Re: UTF-8 not working for MI?

I dug harder and found this:
mi_command_loop (int mi_version)
/* Turn off 8 bit strings in quoted output. Any character with the
high bit set is printed using C's octal format. */
sevenbit_strings = 1;
So, you can reproduce this situation from the CLI by "set print
sevenbit-strings on" before invoking the MI command.
It is an oddity that currently an MI consumer must check gdb's host
charset in order to know how to decode its output. I would recommend
that the client force it to be UTF-8, but I think this currently may not
work with PHONY_ICONV.
