 > marco: nope, not relevant.  The UTF-8 forcing is being done by dbus

 Rereading (sorry I didn't read more carefully the first time), you
 were/are correct: the implicit UTF-8 encoding which gtk seems to force is
 probably responsible for masking most occurrences of this problem.  So
 that gives us some confidence that fixing the few cases where we are *not*
 importing gtk (these dbus services, and probably the datastore), will
 suffice for now.  But we really shouldn't be passing unicode strings to
 filename-manipulation methods...
