I downloaded and installed gerbv (version 2.5.0) via the binary installer from Sourceforge.
When I tried to open a gerber file that contained accented (non-ascii) characters in its path (e.g. C:\Documents and Settings\Felhasználó\Documents\foo.gbr), gerbv either crashed (displaying Windows' oh-so-helpful crash report dialog window) or showed a message about not being able to open the file.
When I copied the file to a different directory (that didn't have any funny letters in its path) the file was opened normally.
OS version: Windows XP SP3
