Xpra: Ticket #1747: Xpra info failing with traceback

Sorry, I have another "feature broken with traceback" ticket. As usual, the server is a Fedora 26 trunk r18035 (freshly updated).

When running xpra info I get this traceback:

Exception in thread parse:
Traceback (most recent call last):

This was caused by r18030 which was trying to make unicode play nice with python2 and python3 on the win32 console:

What this should allow us to do is use unicode characters anywhere strings are allowed, ie:

python2 /usr/bin/xpra start --session-name="Schrödinger"

Then both python2 and python3 versions should be able to print the session name without errors:

python2 /usr/bin/xpra id
python3 /usr/bin/xpra id

This should also fix "xpra info" errors when some of the window metadata contains unicode. (ie: running applications with a non-english locale)

Some entertaining read on the subject:
