pygmentize does not correctly report file names with UTF-8 characters

Issue #1067 resolved

created an issue

On revision 3562, with Python 2.7.8, running the following:

echo foo > é
./pygmentize é

results in the following broken error message:

Error: no lexer for filename '\xc3\xa9' found

Unless I'm doing something wrong, it would probably be neater to fix this?

    I hesistate to change this, since UnicodeErrors during printing of the exception lurk.

    Unless you're using Python 3, you'll have to live with small nits like this.
