expand-file-name is not a problem, it can deal with encoded file
names.  The problem is the calls to remove_slash_colon and
report_file_error: they should receive file names in their internal

How about adding a 'bool' argument to encode_current_directory, so
that the caller could control whether or not it encodes the directory
file name?  Then you could in this case tell encode_current_directory
not to encode the directory file name.
