The title says it all. I think it will be faster if you run the test I attached.
Gunzip the archive on a Linux Server and run glob-locale-test.php.

You can see it directly on

Test script:
See the script on the attached archive (glob-locale-test.php).
It tries to list the files on the associated folder (that is also on the archive) three times.

1. The first one uses glob with the default locale.
2. The second, also uses glob but after the locale has been set to en_US.UTF-8.
3. The third, uses DirectoryIterator.

Expected result:
All tries should list 5 files.

Actual result:
The second try only prints the file with a ascii file name.

This behavior is common to several filesystem functions (see basename()). If the filenames were indeed encoded in UTF-8, there would be no problems.
