I assume someone will file a bug on this?

I kind of have my hands full with build-infra right now.

As you path is "c:/openjdk" then I assume this must be Windows and cygwin, in which case you might (I'm not sure 100% sure) need to adjust it in the control panel. As a check, can you print the value of the file.encoding property in this environment.
