G_BROKEN_FILENAMES is what GTK uses these days.
* The assumption of GLib and GTK+ by default is that filenames on the
filesystem are encoded in UTF-8 rather than the encoding of the locale;
The GTK+ developers consider that having filenames whose interpretation
depends on the current locale is fundamentally a bad idea.
If you have filenames encoded in the encoding of your locale, then
you may want to set the G_BROKEN_FILENAMES environment variable:
Best integration of GTK+-2.2 with the environment is achieved by
using a UTF-8 locale.
