My linux runs with UTF-8, and I'm also have the same problem. As we
discovered because of the
non-ascii chars on filename problem, windows never uses Unicode, so
probably .sav files also don`t uses.
So I think that any OS with UTF-8 will always have this problem.

And because PSPP claims to be compatible with SPSS, we should use the
same encoding as SPSS,
who sadly uses the windows encoding.
