[NTG-context] non-ascii chars in cmd.exe (Windows)

Dear list,

I have the following sample:

  io.write(' Name? ')
  document.name = io.read() or ''
  \cldcontext{document.name} is the name.

Running it on Linux, I can input non-ascii characters.

When running in Windows, if the input chars contains a non-ascii one,
document.name is empty.

I have no problem passing arguments from cmd with Unicode characters
(such as in '--arguments="name={αβγ}"'.

I’m using current latest (ConTeXt MkIV 2020.11.08 12:42).

I’m not sure what I am missing or whether I have hit a bug.

Many thanks for your help,
