I have installed Sonic Visualiser on my computer with Windows XP.
My account name is неадмин (it has Cyrillic letters i its name).
During installation, Sonic Visualiser created a new folder in the C:\Documents and Settings folder, instead of using C:\Documents and Settings\неадмин folder.
The new folder has a name consisting of seven unreadable letters (looking like seven squares). It contains a subfolder named ".Sonic Visualiser".

After the installation, I launched Sonic visualiser, opened my own ererer_Amy.mp3 file (Menu - File - Open...) and tried to create a new Spectrogram pane (Menu - Pane - Add SPectrogram).
I received an error "Failed to open file C:/Documents and Settings/???????/.Sonic Visualiser/sv_aIowGb/0-0-3-1024-512-1024-p-0.mfc", as shown in the screenshot attached.
