Yes.  It's not really a bug, more of an implementation issue.  Bash-4.2
changed the way command-not-found was reported: it encoded non-printable
characters (as reported by isprint(3)) to avoid printing gibberish to the
terminal.  Bash-4.3 improved the handling of printable characters for
which isprint() returns false, mostly multibyte characters.

According to the change log, this went in in the 2011-08-19 snapshot.
