And also a Not Out Bug issue.

First, the debuggers should opt in to UTF-16 support, if they can. If they 
can't, they should be updated to understand CP_UTF8 manifest executables, if 
they are real debuggers.

That leaves debugview.exe which is not a debugger and therefore doesn't know 
where the messages are coming from. This should reduce the annoyance level.

Question: which category does Qt Creator fall into?
