Do you have enough of a test bed, that you can test a build? (and if so, can you build that branch, or do you want me to?)

First off, thanks @zwass@seph for looking into this more. The user on that thread (B3DTech) is using osquery with Security Onion and posted that error over on our support forum, which is why I brought it up over here. I actually havent been able to duplicate the issue on my side.
I will carve out some more time next week to see if I can replicate it and then eventually test that branch

Feel free to update the PR if it seems reasonable to you

So the good news here is that Launcher was still trying to send mis-formatted osquery logs (from when they had osquery < 4.5.1 installed); once we blew away the rocksdb, we can't reproduce the utf8 errors.

Okay, I’m glad that the underlying bug in osquery seems fixed. I think there’s still thing weird in launcher — if it can’t send a log, it gets stuck, But this is somewhat intentional — it’s designed not to lose information
