If a user writes a comment in "Review" tab in UTF8, say to write in their own language, non-ASCII characters can cause halt in compiling a document even when the document is pure English. This happens for example if I use default latex in TeXLive 2012. Although JabRef allows many encodings, as far as UTF8 concerns, converting it to unicode escape strings in Java style may resolve the problem. But I'm not sure if this is the best solution when JabRef accepts other encodings.
