You really have to make sure that you don't let the OS apply a locale to 
the name, so if e.g. you copy the string Canción.tex to the clipboard it 
can go from unicode to some code page and back

if you create files from (say) lua all goes ok as then no translation 
takes place

(maybe it helps to set the code page to 65001)
