Since adding this to the kernel I've not managed to reproduce the issue either
with jumbled or greek characters so I can only assume this was the issue
and the greek char was either random or console corruption on the kvm.

Give this fixes the issue wouldnt it be a good idea to add this to the default
kernel config, if nothing else but to prevent others getting confused / concerned
but the output?
