I' m using "Distance to nearest hub" in Qgis processing toolbox. The input layers have utf-8 data source encoding and attributes are in greek characters and they are displayed properly.
After running the tool the output's attibutes are like: �.� ����������
Also I cannot use a field that contains greek characters for "Hub Layer Name Attribute".
[Errno 9] Bad file descriptor
I test it under windows 7 64bit and arch linux. The problem occurs only under windows, my qgis info:

Also affected by this issue.
Seems like QGIS uses a system default encoding for all Processing toolbox outputs. So for data-sources with any encoding other than system QGIS Processing toolbox converting attributes in outputs to system encoding.
I think this is not right behaviour. QGIS should keep data-source encoding for outputs.
