Description P Jones 2004-01-08 13:24:50 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031114 Description of problem: When I try to open a file with unicode name, emacs doesn't open the file (presents me with a blank buffer) and has a escaped(and wrong) name as the name of the buffer. I tested this as Japanese. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): emacs-21.3-7 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 0. Install with emacs and Japanese language. 1. Log in as japanese (LANG=ja_JP.UTF8). 2. open a terminal 3. create a unicode filename (echo hi > ï¿½ï¿½test) (shift-space s u enter shift-space for the magic char) 4. open it with "emacs ï¿½ï¿½test" 5. Note the filename in emacs is "a\201\231test" and doesn't have "hi" in it. 6. Go to File->open file and open enter the filename. 7. Note the filename is correct and the contents are correct. Additional info: I also tried this with vim and gedit to make sure it wasn't something more fundimental, but it looks like emacs just isn't parsing command lines with i18n in mind.

Reproduced. Probably a good idea to ask the Emacs developers about this.
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-01-14 19:58:44 EST
Reproduced with cvs emacs too fwiw.
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-09-29 04:56:16 EDT
Seems to be fixed in cvs emacs as of July anyway.
