I don't know enough about unicode to fully answer those questions, as I
am an American and we don't learn much about those things.  But I think
the underlying Gtk+ expects UTF8, whereas mono/mcs default to something
else (UTF-16?), or maybe the other way around.  So I'll defer to the
head-honchos of whether it is safe for us to compile with -codepage:utf8
for all MonoDevelop projects, or only Gtk# projects, or not at all.
Then I/we can fix MD to work better based on their advice.
