I installed 2.6.4-2 in Windows 7 Professional Edition, Simplified
Chinese. Sorry, I don't have a copy of traditional edition. Create,
save as and open files, that either has name containing traditional
Chinese characters, or in a directory whose name contains traditional
Chinese characters, or both, the problem does not happen.

btw, in Report, the bug above happens.
