After some debugging I might have found the culprit...

In mono-filemap.c the function

 MonoFileMap *
 mono_file_map_open (const char* name)
    return (MonoFileMap *)fopen (name, "rb");

gets called (by do_mono_image_open() in image.c) with an UTF8-encoded filename,
but fopen() needs an ANSI string.
This works fine as long as all characters can be encoded in one byte -
unfortunately this is not the case with certain national language characters.

So I changed mono_file_map_open() to use _wfopen() on Windows and assembly
loading works fine:

 MonoFileMap *
 mono_file_map_open (const char* name)
+#ifdef WIN32
+    gunichar2 * wname = g_utf8_to_utf16(name, -1, 0, 0, 0);
+    MonoFileMap * result = (MonoFileMap *)_wfopen((wchar_t *)wname, L"rb");
+    g_free(wname);
+    return result;
     return (MonoFileMap *)fopen (name, "rb");

Please check this patch (diff file attached) - if approved, it would be great
to have it in the next release of mono.
