Description (last modified by daira)

This did not used to work on the 1431-windows-drop-upload branch. I forget the exact symptoms, but IIRC this ticket was about non-ASCII characters in the path to the magic folder (then drop-upload) directory itself, rather than the paths under that directory.

A lot has changed in path handling since then, and I do not know whether it works on the 2438.magic-folder-stable.5 branch. In any case this needs smoke-testing and unit tests.

Note that to properly test this requires using characters that are not representable in the system's "ANSI" encoding (e.g. Windows-1252 on U.S./U.K-localised Windows).

I suspect this was already fixed by the changes for long path support, if not before.
