Re: bitcoin 0.3 win64 – broken access to APPDATA if non-latin characters in username

I know it’s not the smartest move to name my user account using non-latin characters. Anyway, 0.2 has no problems with this.

Verified as follows… created a ‘normal’ new user and 0.3 opened the data folder. Created new, fresh data folder and copied it to the non-standard user – 0.3 fails with DB_RUN_RECOVERY.

Thanks for finding that.  We switched from ANSI in 0.2 to UTF-8 in version 0.3, so it must be related to that.

Just to confirm, if you log in with the non-latin character username, not having an appdata/Bitcoin directory yet, and run Bitcoin and let it create the database from scratch, does it work or not?
