Sorry, my last email wasn't exactly clear. I know a little more about
the problem then what was posted on the email list. I believe the issue
comes from reading the home directory from getenv() method calls which
return char *. What is encoded in the char * might be interesting to
hear about. Does winderz return UTF-8 or upper-ascii single-byte for
the accented e?
