Yes, but probably a bug in your Windows system.  I don't have 1.2.2 up
(it's obselete) but it causes no problem with 1.2.3 or pre-1.3.0 here.

A bug crashing on all chars above 128 is unlikely: Guido works in Italy,
after all.

We have had two or three reports of such things, on isolated machines
and different characters (UK pound sign, which this mailer will not accept,
was one).  That's Windows for you.
