So it seems like the safest bet would be to try to decode the window

ok, that makes sense. 

For the record, here's what I'm going to use:

my $raw_name = $win->get_name;
my $name;
eval { $name = decode( 'UTF-8' , $raw_name, 1); };
$name = decode( 'x11-compound-text', $raw_name ) if $@;

Many thanks for the help :-)

All the best
