IRB crashing silently with non ASCII characters?

  1. Hi gurus and nubys,

    I just noticed that if I type italian accented letters in a irb
    session irb crashes silently:

    C:\Documents and Settings\gabriele>irb
    irb(main):001:0> è

    (probably in this message this letter won't appear fine but is an
    accented 'e'
    This happens on a windows XP box, where I think the charset is
    windows-1252 and irb goes down with every accented vocal.

    ruby 1.8.2 (2004-06-29) [i386-mswin32] (latest one-click installer)
