Pfsense file encoding & logs & syslog

I have problem with logs stored in pfSense, for me problem concerns openvpn.log, but this is problem in general as I think.
So files in pfsense are stored by default with encoding:
I have openvpn config which involves smartcards certificates and have users, who have Polish characters in names like 'ł'.
All data are stored in UTF-8.
This is output of /var/log/openvpn.log:
Feb 22 10:41:34 router openvpn: Wies\xc5M-^Baw […]
and pfSense syslog interface can't event show those lines! (file attached).
Sending to syslog also breaks system, because as far as I know syslog servers expect to receive UTF-8 always and not messed up us-ascii.
What can I do with this error and don't you think that pfsense should run in utf-8 mode?
