git-gui--askpass: coerce answers to UTF-8 on Windows
This addresses the issue where Git for Windows asks the user for a password, no credential helper is available, and then Git fails to pick up non-ASCII characters from the Git GUI helper. This can be verified e.g. via echo host=http://abc.com | git -c credential.helper= credential fill and then pasting some umlauts. The underlying reason is that Git for Windows tries to communicate using the UTF-8 encoding no matter what the actual current code page is. So let's indulge Git for Windows and do use that encoding.
