bug#25038: 25.1; Accent in Windows username prevents Emacs from loading

From: dalokmarcinak
Subject: bug#25038: 25.1; Accent in Windows username prevents Emacs from loading customizations
Date: Sat, 26 Nov 2016 19:33:29 +0100



If I start Emacs by opening (double-clicking) a file that has its extension associated

with Emacs, my user directory is not found, my .emacs is not run

etc. This does not happen if I start emacs from the command-line or by

double-clicking the executable, this way my user directory is correctly found.


Here is the error message:

Warning (initialization): Unable to create `user-emacs-directory' (~/.emacs.d/).

Any data that would normally be written there may be lost!

If you never want to see this message again,

customize the variable `user-emacs-directory-warning'.

Error (initialization): User M rton has no home directory

Warning (initialization): An error occurred while loading ‘nil’:


File error: Opening directory, No such file or directory, c:/Users/M\341rton/AppData/Roaming


To ensure normal operation, you should investigate and remove the

cause of the error in your initialization file.  Start Emacs with

the ‘--debug-init’ option to view a complete error backtrace.
