This sounds like you may be running into unicode encoding issues in your
python source files. https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0263/ has the full
details, but the tl,dr version is that if you have unicode literals in your
python source file you need something like "# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-" at the
top of your file. The python interpreter inspects your environment to
determine the correct encoding to use, but your environment in a confined
snap probably doesn't provide the same hints...

If that doesn't work, can you build a minimal reproducer for us to look at?
