Observe the title in the hotlist is correct.
Either export the hotlist and load it into NetSurf, or quit NetSurf and re-load in order to save and re-load the hotlist into memory.
Observe that the title in the hotlist is now "??????? Google" (with all the Cyrillic chars replaced by question marks)

With LIBICONV_PLUG=YES (which is our default), both the window title and the exported hotlist replace the non-ASCII characters with question marks.
Toggling LIBICONV_PLUG=NO, the non-ASCII characters fail to convert at all in the window title, however the exported hotlist file is correct.
