#135 Files Listing issue when meet chinese filename

Zhang Tao

The File Listing Window of screem, cannot show the
chinese filename (these filename use zh_CN charset -
gb2312 or gbk or gb18030 - NOT utf-8), only show a
blank line.

When double click the filename that included chinese
words, screem warn me "Invalid UTF-8 words".

Certainly, when from File menu to Open the file whose
filename include chinese words, the Filename Tab of
the main window is blank, though the file is opened

I think screem should use current locale (charset?)
when reading filename, not regard it as UTF-8 charset.

Both of screem 0.6.2 and 0.7.1 have this issue.

    CVS should have this fixed for the file listing window.

    I have update the source from cvs (Date is 2003-5-28 09:30,
    I'm in China, so timezone needs +8 hours), and compile it

    I still find the problems:
    1. the file listing window NOT show the chinese filename,
    and also NOT have a blank line;
    2. I can open file from Menu File->Open, and no error alert
    me. But the Filename Tab of the main window is still blank.
    When mouse move on top of it, it shows
    "file:///home/zhangtao/%B1%EA%CA%B6%B7%FB.txt"; And the
    File->Recenet Pages shows this, too.

    So I think still needs patch about showing filename.
