[rabbitmq-discuss] Non-ascii characters in user's profile path. OS: Windows 7.

 From what I recall when I last looked at this, it was more of an Erlang 

Erlang pretty much assumes that UTF-8 is the one true encoding. On Unix 
that's a fairly reasonable assumption. Unfortunately Windows still tends 
to use country-specific encodings for things like paths. I'm not sure 
there's a very good solution to this, certainly not from the RabbitMQ 
side; either Windows needs to start using UTF-8 everywhere (which I 
*think* is happening) or Erlang needs to start supporting lots of other 
encodings (which I doubt will every happen).

Cheers, Simon
