When trying to add a file with non-ascii file name the following error may
be reported

"do_stat: does not exist (No such file or directory)"

This happens on both the win32 darcs versions (1.0.9 - with or without
cygwin). It was consistent with a file whose name consisted of the single
character with code 247. It didn't happen with all the non-ascii file names
(for exmaple I tried with a Hebrew file name and it worked ok), nor did it
happen when the character code was 248.

Cheers,
Shmul

Any chance you could try the same on Linux or MacOS?  Thanks for the bug report!

Shmul: could you kind submit some kind of test case that we can use?  The best
would be a patch adding a test to our bugs/ directory, but whatever is
convenient for you is fine.  Your description sounds encouragingly reproducible.
 Thanks!

I've uploaded an empty file whose name is the character 247. Hopefully the file
name won't be changed by the bug-tracking or web-server.

Hmm... looks like our bugtracker ate the filename.  Maybe create a zip file?

I'll state for the record that I have no idea about encoding issues and
filesystems, so if anybody here knows what they're talking about, they should
speak up.

The attached archive contains a single empty file whose name is character 247.
Now we should hope that the unzip process won't rename it :) 7zip on windows
does the trick.

Thanks.  That filename looks like a y with two dots on it.  Is that correct?
I wasn't able to reproduce the bug on Linux, btw, but I'll submit a test case.

Hmm... looking closer at this, I'm guessing you meant character 247 under the
Windows-1255 encoding, which is ק but I'm not entirely sure, nor do I have a
good idea how to turn this into a proper test case...

Hi Salvatore,

May I ask you to examine this ticket? The main difficulty I have is
understanding what this bug is about, but it does include a zip file with a repo
to look at.  Thanks!

I tried to download the zip file, unzipped it and there's a single
file inside with a strange character (a comma-like character on my
system).
Using darcs init and darcs add it seems to work (I tried modifying it,
running darcs whatsnew, the usual stuff).

I used darcs 2.3. I think that this bug can be closed.

Salvatore
