  The C library part I don't quite know the difference, but it appears
that you managed to install a VM based on 3.9-12.  I don't know if it
is straight from "trunk", or the olpc branch, but it must be a version
of VM that generates the keyboard event in the "new way".

  Not quite sure about this.  Is there a difference when the file name
contains accented characters or not?

  In the very latest Etoys 2.2, there are a few change sets that
adapts the new VM.  The cursor keys don't work and we probably need
another VM fix for that, but accented characters should work with the
combination of the VM and an image with these changes.
