Some testing gives this:

 "C:\\Documents and Settings\\Propri\202taire"
"C:\\Documents and Settings\\PropriƩtaire"

IOW, your environment seems to be in Windows' OEM encoding.  So do
things work if you set locale-coding-system to that?  You may have to
execute (codepage-setup 437), before you can use 'cp437.


PS: I'm not sure why you think any of the other messages is relevant,
none of them seems to say anything about encodings issues, which are
clearly your problem here.  Of course I may be missing something.
