Previously it was merely assumed that the config files are utf-8 encoded. To properly address issues with matching of non-ASCII characters we now require that the config files are utf-8 encoded.

Configuration files that cannot be decoded will be skipped, and the corresponding service will go to UNKNOWN, displaying an appropriate message.
