 There seems to be a character encoding problem with the standard error
 output. Some characters outside the A to Z range appear mangled. See the
 picture. I'm also attaching an audio file you can use to reproduce the

 ffmpeg -i "Måns Zelmerlöw - Heroes.mp3"


 This occurs with the latest "static" Windows build (32 bit) as of writing
 this: 20190308-147ef1d
