anaconda crashes when typing non-latin character in user creation

Description of problem:
When I create user in anaconda I can enter my real name and username. My real name is Łukasz and username entry is filled automatically. And then anaconda crashes. I can type Lukasz as real name and everything is fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I tried it once.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create user in Anaconda (while installing packages)
2. type non-latin character in real name.
I know that username generally shouldn't contain "Ł" character, but anaconda use it anyway. It crashes in the process, but even if it wouldn't, it's still bad idea to have "łukasz" username.

More additional info:
When I type "Łukasz Po" anaconda says:
UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xc5 in position 0: unexpected end of data - anaconda.
Pushed the fix for the crash to rhel7-branch
Verified on anaconda 19.31.54.
