pylint #4683 Non-ASCII characters count double if utf8 encode [resolved]

Lubin Fayolle reported

# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
"""A little script to demonstrate a little bug."""

print "------------------------------------------------------------------------"
print "-----------------------------------------------------------------------é"

Pylint returns the following warning: [C] Line too long (81/80)

where line 6 corresponds to the second call of print. The two lines are the same length though... It seems that 'é' counts double, like many (any?) other non-ASCII characters.
