According to Denis, cc'd here, using a French RSAT appears to be writing
GPT.INI files which are not UTF-8, but instead using ISO-8859 to
represent accented characters (in the display name for a GPO).

"The gpt.ini file MUST be encoded in UTF-8..."

According the the documentation, it is required to be UTF-8, so
something doesn't quite add up here. Denis can probably reconfirm
himself, but any assistance reproducing or confirming this behaviour
would be appreciated. Assuming this is an issue, it's unclear what the
effect of other locales is.
