GNU Guile

This is not happening on my build of guile 1.9.14.

The problem is due to scm_from_latin1_symbol() in file load.c together with that I set the locale to LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8. It works with either the default locale on Mac OS X 10.5.8, which is LC_CTYPE=UTF-8, or LC_CTYPE=en_US.ISO8859-1. However, some software does not work unless the locale is changed to what I set it to (the default locale causes problems).
