Debugger now Unicode?

No, the debugger is not now Unicode. However, with a file that short,
Windows is unable to determine whether it's ASCII or Unicode, and the
Windows API guesses (wrongly) that it's Unicode. (If you added or
subtracted one character, Windows would know that it was ASCII.)

Fortunately, there's not much reason to attempt to debug a batch file that
only says "foo"!
