Sorry for the late response.  I've just installed a fix.

The problem was that the first argument ABSNAME of
barf_or_query_if_file_exists was not consistent in
multibyteness.  The function expects it not yet encoded and
Fwrite_region calls it with non-encoded filename.  But the
other functions calls it with already encoded filename.
Considering that barf_or_query_if_file_exists signals an
error or show a message with ABSNAME, I think it should be a
non-encoded filename.  So I've installed the following

2007-03-22  Kenichi Handa  <address@hidden>

        * fileio.c (Fcopy_file): Call barf_or_query_if_file_exists with
        non-encoded file name.
        (Frename_file): Likewise.
        (Fadd_name_to_file): Likewise.
        (Fmake_symbolic_link): Likewise.
