Erroneous line number error in Py2.4.1 [Windows 2000+SP3]

P: n/a
For some reason Python 2.3.5 reports the error in the following program

File "C:\Temp\", line 7
SyntaxError: unknown decode error

...whereas Python 2.4.1 reports an invalid line number:

File "C:\Temp\", line 2
SyntaxError: unknown decode error

----- starts -----
# -*- coding: ascii -*-

Foo bar

# is not allowed in ascii coding
----- ends -----

Does anyone have a clue what is going on? Without the encoding
declaration both Python versions report the usual deprecation warning
(just like they should be doing).

My environment: Windows 2000 + SP3.
