As per the VS2005 help:

C4819 occurs when an ANSI source file is compiled on a system with a codepage that cannot represent all characters in the file.
To resolve C4819, save the file in Unicode format.
So, you either use a codepage that does support ANSI,
I've noticed that the people reporting these issues seem to be coming 
from East Asian countries; I'd prefer not to force them to choose a code 
page other than one appropriate for their language (their code pages 
have double-byte characters, which might impose restrictions on what can 
follow a byte with the 8th bit set).
...or we find all the non-ASCII characters in the files (or, at least, the ones that cause problems; I don't know whether MSVC has problems with comments)
It appears to have problems with comments.  I've just checked in a fix 
for packet-bacapp.h; I'll look at the other files.
Even in comments, there's no guarantee that they'll be displayed right 
on all platforms ("displayed" in the sense of "show up in your editor"), 
so we should get rid of them.
