Ok, had a phone call with Simo on this issue. We decided :

1). We're broken here, and the "unix charset = utf8" bandaid
is the current best (ie. easiest) solution.

2). Escaping isn't being done correctly, Simo is going to
write a fix for this - in the meantime I'm checking in my
consistency fix so that we're broken in the same way in
both calls.

3). Simo is compeltely correct - the "correct" fix for
this is to enforce utf8 internally and move the boundary
for unix charset out. But this is a bigger fix than we
have time for for 3.0.25. But I'd like to open the
design gates for how to do this - more in a follow
up email later :-).
