OK, so this is really known issue with encodings.

If you have all your files in the latin-1 encoding then you can set
this option in your main bazaar.conf, i.e. add following line:

encoding = latin-1

to the file bazaar.conf in the your Application Data folder, look at the
output of `bzr version` for the line like this

Bazaar configuration: C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Application Data\bazaar\2.0

In that folder you'll find bazaar.conf.
