This is difficult question.  Encoding in filesystem is system
management issue, so one directory may be handled by UTF-8, but other
directory may be handled by ISO-8859-1.  So it's hard for me to decide
setting G_FILENAME_ENCODING currently.

BTW, your report is filename appearance - it's another issue.  I guess
it's gimp's problem.  I reassign it to gimp - gimp maintainer could
you check this report?
