Yes, but I can't printf a wide char string, as far as I know, so I then 
have to convert it back to local encoding (CP_ACP?) and hope that it 

Also, I think there is no guarantee that other clients will store their 
filenames on the server in UTF-8 or any other encoding, so moving files 
with such names across platforms would still be a problem, I guess.

Cheers, Chris.
