[chirp_users] European characters in Windows user name

Chirp crashes/aborts when the Windows user name contains
European/Cyrillic characters.

The last line of the debug.log file reads:  "UnicodeDecodeError:
'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xf6 in position 9: invalid start byte"

Is there a workaround? Like a command like option to set the file
location to a location without "strange characters"?

Changing the user name to something else isn't really an option since
it used for other systems...
