Androidtools does not handle non-ASCII device names. This prevents both MonoDevelop and Visual Studio from deploying to such devices. Unfortunately this seems to be undefined in the adb spec so we'll have to reverse engineer it to find out exactly what encodings can/should be used.

This should be fixed, I switched it to UTF8 some time back.
