Xpra: Ticket #2096: unicode error with win32 builds

With 2.4.?

Stacktrace reported as a picture (..):

xpra/scripts/main.py line 68 in main
xpra/scripts/config.py line 1178 in make_defaults_struct
xpra/scripts/config.py line 389 in read_xpra_defaults
xpra/os_util.py line 486 in osexpand
xpra/os_util.py line 451 in shellsub

My guess, based on the screenshot is that this is a character encoding issue with the username or home path.

Looks similar to #1173.

Using the unicode string from ticket #2109, I created a user named Каждый человек and I cannot get xpra to trigger any errors. Whatever the problem is, I will need more details to reproduce it.
