The Qt version does the same:

  char *pin = (char *) pinentry.text().utf8();

I have not checked what the curses version does.  In general everything
should be utf8 but for historical reasons we have never enforced that so
that you may end up with a mismatch between using the command line
version and Pinentry or another GUI to enter the passphrase.

I would advice to use the too initially used to set the passphrase and
change the passphrase to a plain ascii one.  Later it can then be
changed using the GUI.
