      Description

      On some machines UTF-8 gets corrupted over the multilang protocol. Analysis of the problem leads to JsonSerializer usage of InputStreamReader when reading from stdin.
      InputStreamReader uses the JVM defaults, which is usually UTF-8 but not always.

      Temporary Workaround:
      Edit storm/conf/storm.yaml and enforce the default JVM charset as follows:
      worker.childopts: "-Xmx768m -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8"

      Required Fix in JsonSerializer:
      Pass the string "UTF-8" to the InputStreamReader constructor as second argument.

      Notes:
      The implementation already enforces UTF-8 when writing to stdout, so there is no other fix needed there.
      python simplejson and ruby json gem use UTF-8 as the default.
