Description

Starting arm (64816a180a29797dad6d11f8649db08632670d6a) results in a stacktrace -

arm :: (master) »  ./arm                                                                                                                                                                      ~/arm  1 ↵

    line = uiTools.getPrintable(line)
  File "/home/gsathya/arm/src/util/uiTools.py", line 127, in getPrintable
    line = line.replace('\xc2', "'")
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc2 in position 0: ordinal not in range(128)

Setting priority to major since I'm not even able to start arm.

Hi gsathya. As I've mentioned before the master repository underwent a mass refactoring which diminished its stability. Patches welcome, but I don't intend to investigate one-off stack traces until I've finished the overhaul. *After* that however these kind of bug reports would be most appreciated. :P

You're certainly welcome to continue reporting issues, but unless it's against the 1.4.5.0 I don't consider it to be a overly substantial problem until the refactoring is done.

Cleaning up old tickets. Nyx is undergoing a rewrite, if this is still relevant then feel free to reopen.
