Please describe the problem.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

I ran git annex adjust --unlock in a repo. git-annex did its job and added a commit with the description "git-annex adjusted branch". The author field does not seem to respect utf8, though. I get: "Author: Félix" while I have "Author: Félix" for all the other (manual) commits.

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

Current Debian sid version: 7.20181205
