Description:
After creating .mylogin.cnf with mysql_config_editor, I would like use Python MySQL connector to connect to MySQL server with this login path file.

But I got the following error message:

return codecs.ascii_decode(input, self.errors)[0]
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0x94 in position 28: ordinal not in range(128)

My code is simple:

import mysql.connector
import os
mysql.connector.connect(option_files=os.path.expanduser('XXX/.mylogin.cnf'))

How to repeat:
1.connect_mysql.py:

    import mysql.connector
    import os
    mysql.connector.connect(option_files=os.path.expanduser('~/.mylogin.cnf'))

2. python connect_mysql.py
