--charset=utf-8 is actually nothing more than: Don't convert anything.

The problem you encounter is that the print function sanitizes the
string and detects that 0xe9, 0x20 is not a valid utf-8 sequence.  It
seems to be safest to hex print the characters in this case. 

Using the machine interface (i.e. --with-colons), you won't see this
