Hyphens in test data are getting converted to Question marks in OUTA flow testing

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
GUI based flow is configured with test data containing hyphens. The string is stored in a global variable. The hyphens are converted to question marks when the string variable is printed for log message.
The validation function also fails when the string variable is compared with the expected value, since the actual and expected mismatch due to conversion of " "- to "?".

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Hyphen does not convert to "?".

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a GUI based flow and provide a string input containing hyphens to a text field in the UI.
2. Use appendString function call to store the string value to an global output variable.
3. Print the output variable using log message method.
4. The mail generated with log message will show the string printed with question marks rather than hyphens
