Unicode windows console output.

Hello all,

I'm attempting to output some Unicode on the windows console. I set my
windows console code page to utf-8 using "chcp 65001".

The program:

-- Test.hs
main = putStr "λ.x→x"

The output of `runghc Test.hs`:


>From within ghci, typing `main`:

λ*** Exception: <stdout>: hPutChar: permission denied (Permission denied)

I suspect both of these outputs are evidence of bugs. Might I be doing
something wrong? (aside from using windows ;))
