Default Problem with file path / can't open file / no message

I was recently debugging a very strange codec problem, eventually found out it's actually not a codec problem but a file path problem.
Put your avi/mp4 file on your Windows system into a directory such as this:
Notice the AE character [probably unicode UTF-8] in the line above. BSplayer will not complain about the path but will not open the file either. 2 other players opened the file with no problem. I thought this is a AVC1 codec problem, NOT!!
The same happens when I put the Æ character directly into the filename.

I tried this on BSplayer 2.53.1033 but I bet this is the case in all bsplayers out there.
