To reproduce:

$ cat 
except EnvironmentError, err:
    print type(err.filename), repr(err.filename)

$ python 
<type 'unicode'> u'hyv\xe4'

$ jython --version
Jython 2.5.2

$ jython 
<type 'str'> 'hyv\xe4'

I fixed this in open and in some os module functions which had the same issue

(32b8ace8ef6d & d70e1a817a61)

It could still crop up again with exception callbacks triggered by the jnr-posix library (in org.python.modules.posix.PythonPosixHandler#error). A fix for that requires a hacky solution or a rethinking of how jnr-posix does those callback exceptions, so I'll defer that for later
