when outputing to console, it's encoding is ignored for Windows
|Status:||Third Party's Issue|
|ruby -v:||ruby 2.0.0p195 (2013-05-14) [x64-mingw32]||Backport:||1.9.3: UNKNOWN, 2.0.0: UNKNOWN|
for example code
print "testing ā"
when open CMD with changed encoding ie. ((%chcp 1257%))
it wont correctly output ((ā)) even that encoding and console does support it.
also if we change console's encoding to utf-8 with ((%chcp 65001%))
both Ruby versions (1.9 and 2.0) will crash (see attachment)

I was not able to reproduce your problem.
Can you try the same script?

Is it some MinGW lib's fault for this?
It's still happening with ruby 1.9.3p448 and 2.0.0p247
seems very similar to #7758 maybe it's even same bug.
Those raster fonts acts really weird...
BTW, it does crash even if I launch ruby.exe directly from cmd.exe with full path.
