Description

Hi,

fwd from grass bug # 996. (osgeo4w is our build environment for MS Windows)

https://trac.osgeo.org/grass/ticket/996

There is an bug in tcl used in current wingrass packages that
prevents tcl usage with non-latin filenames. In version 8.5.8.1
directories work fine (couldn't find exact entry in tcl bugzilla,
still I got a hint in #tcl that there where fixes regarding
encodings on Windows).

Test with:

mkdir "āšņļ"
wish
puts [file isdirectory [tk_chooseDirectory]]

Wiht current Wingrass included tcl/tk it returns 0 for "āšņļ"
directory, with 8.5.8.1 from ActiveState? it returns 1, as it
should be.

Tested failure with WinGRASS-6.4.SVN-r41363 on Windows Vista
region set to Latvia.

Turns out to be WinGRASS packaging bug. Lack of .enc files. Still it would be nice to have a newer TCL/Tk version ;)
