Argh! ={ Didn't think about it... well, I usually don't use accents on
file names, but this of course doesn't mean I won't run into probls.

So, the conclusion is that UTF-8 support for i18n still needs a lot of
work to correctly support some Latin languages (at least Portuguese and
Spanish, from what I've been reading on this forum). Or am I missing

Does anyone here knows if using ISO-8859-1 as default locale (instead of
UTF-8) is dangerous in anyway to ext[23]?
