Thanks for the additional feedback. We will look into applying the
workaround to file:consult() and other functions in file.erl as well.

I checked our code base, and found almost 700 .erl and .hrl files
containing Latin-1 characters. That's only about 15% of all source files,
so the effect on compilation times of retrying should be small.
You might also want to retry with Latin-1 in file:consult() and the other
functions in file.erl that depend on encodings.
