This looks very much like a bug in WxWidgets (the "portable" GUI 
framework with "bug-less" Unicode implementation). My best bet is that 
wxConvCurrent returns CP1252 regardless of the actual Windows ANSI code 

I guess we have to use the Unicode build of wxWidgets to work-around 
this problem. But the problem is that we, VLC developpers, 
are "purposedly" causing Win32-WxWidgets Unicode builds to fail.

The other work-around would be to replace the wxConvCurrent with our own 
logic to detect the right conversion, but that's error-prone, and I am 
simply too burnt out with this WxWidgets madness.

Feel free (if not compelled) to bash the WxWidgets developpers on my

even more f***ing pissed off by the WxWidgets developpers and their 
crappy so-called toolkit since they contacted us.
