Hm. Why should it matter? Shouldn't (in theory at least) everything
treat the file name as 0-terminated binary data? In general the locale
does not guarantee that the filename are in a specific encoding, if
nothing else you might have mounted a disk from a different PC for
recovery, having a look at someone else's home or whatever...
What I do know though is that on my 32 bit system ICC does not
run at all because out of laziness I still have de_DE as locale but the
locale data for that is not installed - no idea why it is so essential
to ICC though...
