Patch #2 for 2.0rc2 is now available to fix this, in case anyone else 
runs into it:


The problem occurs on Linux and possibly OS X when there is no .wingide2
and no .wingide directory and the locale is non-English and happens to
contain non-ascii characters in the translated "file or directory not
found" message that comes with the Python IOError exception.

This patch fixes related errors in a number of other places, where we were
making assumptions about the text encoding used for these messages when
we write them to our internal error log.

Thanks again for reporting this!
