Windows version of PHP have an very old bug, that not allowing to open files (directories) that contains UNICODE symbols. It's because it use ANSI functions to operate with filesystem. I analyze problem, and propose next solution: take UTF-8 PHP strings, convert them in code to wchar_t, and use windows UNICODE functions for access filesystem.
My patch demonstrates fully functional workaround. But it is not well integrated nor optimized.
Please, analyze and integrate this solution into mainline codebase, because it a very demanded feature.
Best regards, Yury Presnyakov.

Expected result:
This patch transparently converts UTF-8 strings to UNICODE strings (and back, if needed). That made possible to access in windows files that contains non ANSI characters.

Thanks for your patch!

Sadly it is only a very small part of what has to be done to support Unicode 

I mark this bug as duplicate as there is already an open issue/feature request 
about it. More details about unicode for windows file operations will be added in 
the wiki, most likely for php-next.
