Issue Description
Euca2ools crashes when non-ASCII character is passed (TOOLS-385) Occurs when the locale settings prevent python from encoding all of the characters in a command's output. Work around this by explicitly setting the LC_CTYPE environment variable to a locale that is capable of handling the characters in use, such as en_US.UTF-8.
