      Description

      Having a localized windows, I have to use UTF8 for my config files.
      editors on windows write UTF8 files in UTF8 with BOM mode,
      and zabbix can't read these files (complaining on the garbage at the beginning of the files).

      Zabbix should recognize and accept the "BOM" for UTF8 files.

      right now, i have to use a specific editor ( notepad++, configured to write in UTF8 without BOM).
      on servers where I can't install the editor, I have to edit my config in notepad and then use the old edit from command to remove the 3 BOM characters.
      witch is painful and prone to error.
