Thanks for the report! I'll take a look at this.

I suspect the root issue is that we're trying to JSON-encode non-UTF data because of the repository service configuration in the cluster. This might require a partial fix of T5955, although I think I had some plans to just change how this API works (to return a reference to a file rather than the raw file data, which could be better for a number of reasons) so that might be a simpler approach.

We can also generally improve the error behavior here.
