Do you see anything resembling what's described in
What character representation are you using? Is a character represented
by one or by two (or more) bytes?
Your original mail stated
"I did some test and found out that ``every file whose path includes
Korean characters weren't openable.'' Still, I could move arround those
paths from my shell, and get the file/directory listings with "ls"
normally. I could still create directories with Korean names. "
That would indicate that it's not the path handling code, but the use
of NtCreateFile in 1.5.10.
Can you "ls -l" those paths?
Can you run some very simple program demonstrating the problem under
strace, something like
strace -o strace-10.txt touch "some short Korean path"
both under 1.5.10 and 1.5.9?
