Yes, of course:-)

The bug seems to be fixed. Now i can drag the file into emacs-w32.

The buffer name in the status bar are normal. However, the file name in 
the frame title is a mess.

I have this in my .emacs:
(setq frame-title-format "%f")

I can save my file correctly, so this seems to be a simply display problem.
