Bug Description

I am based on Scandinavia and therefore constantly need to use the Scandic letters 'ä' and 'ö' in my writing and in naming files. This seems to cause a codec incompatibility when attempting to export the Bazaar database with "bzr fast-export --no-plain . > fast-export.db". This command fails with the following error message:

23:21:57 Calculating the revisions to include ...
23:21:57 Starting export of 197 revisions ...
bzr: ERROR: exceptions.UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 29: ordinal not in range(128)
