Well, you have to tell us that this string is improperly interpreted
as ISO-8859-1 by your xterm. Otherwise it's meaningless. ;-)

Are you sure about that being properly base64-encoded?

Python 2.1.1 (#5, Nov 18 2001, 17:07:23) 
[GCC 2.95.2 19991024 (release)] on linux2
>>> import base64
>>> base64.decodestring('Y249U3RpZyBWZW7DpXMsIGRjPW15LWRvbWFpbixkYz1jb20')
Traceback (most recent call last):

For your records Python's UTF-8 encoding:

>>> unicode('Venås','iso-8859-1').encode('utf-8')

Ciao, Michael.
