#1024 PR merged: Fixed non ASCII characters in scripts.

Labels: cleanup, fixed / solved / done, minor bug

Non-ASCII characters (e.g. UTF-8 characters) in scripts
are not wanted, see

Non-ASCII characters (e.g. UTF-8 characters) in scripts
might even cause failures on systems that do not
support non-POSIX/non-C locales (like UTF-8),
e.g. in the recovery system during "rear recover".

Currently non-ASCII characters were only used in
comments in the scripts but even that makes it at least
hard to read the comments in a non-ASCII locale
in particular because it is impossible to know
what encoding is meant by a sequence of bytes
that is a non-ASCII character, cf.
