Let create 2 files in a folder with name "dir":

- x.php
- x2.php

Let put the following content in x.php:

require_once 'x2.php';
$a = __DIR__;
var_dump($a === $b);

and the following content in x2.php:

$b = __DIR__;

Let's open x.php in a browser, it outputs true.

Let's now repeat the same steps but within a folder named "diré".
The output is false (in my case).

Sounds like encoding/normalization issue.
What's the content of $a and $b?
i.e. var_dump(bin2hex($a), bin2hex($b));

Oh thank you.
It turns out that the problem was apache httpd.conf encoding.

I had a line like this in my virtual hosts:
    DocumentRoot "/Volumes/Macintosh HD 2/web/Komin>/service création/projets/doo"
Pasting it from a text-editor in utf-8, it works well ($a===$b),
however, pasting it from a text-editor in plain encoding makes it fail,
although the exact same string appears in the text-editor window (I find this very confusing).    

Problem solved.

Closing as not-a-bug, as the issue was resolved.
