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.

I think I see where the problem is.  Coincidentally, I recently coded a replacement for the function in question which should fix it.  It’s not enabled yet, but in the SVN version it prints a debug message in debug.log showing the new directory value and old value for comparison.
