+Summary: XSP crashes completely on Windows, when username has international characters
+It would seem the entire Mono framework has a problem handling paths that
+contain non-ASCII characters, for instance the acute accent on the 'e' of
+my first name, Jérémie (I've noticed that Firefox has this problem too).
+This is problem that is somewhat resolved when specifying the proper
+MONO_EXTERNAL_ENCODINGS to "default_locale", However this proves to not
+always be the case.
+I've been trying to run XSP for some time, and I just now realized the
+problem. XSP unsuccessfully tries to create, and access DLLs in the folder:
+The folder (and the temporary subdirectory) are created, but there seems to
+be an error accessing this (and running the temp .DLL there).
+The manifestation of this problem: XSP starts seemingly without problem,
+but as soon as you make a page request, it crashes without any error message.
+To make sure the problem was indeed with the file, I created a temporary
+WinXP account, called Guest (thus without accents), and ran XSP from
+there—it ran without any problems at all, and I got the sample index page,
+with the links to all the showcases.
+(Is it possible to specify that XSP use C:\WINDOWS\TEMP as temporary
