I observe the same behavior on Windows:

$ jython25
Jython 2.5rc2 (Release_2_5rc2:6341, May 11 2009, 17:07:28)
[Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (Sun Microsystems Inc.)] on java1.6.0_13
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> →
  File "<stdin>", line 1
    →
    ^
SyntaxError: no viable alternative at character '→'
>>>

Instead of using control-Z, the console now defaults to using the Unix standard of control-D for quitting a session. This might be considered to be an improvement :)

Unfortunately the exact character displayed has been replaced by "?"
But it is a little arrow towards the right.
