Where do you set your $LANG ? It must be set before KDE is started to take 
effect for KDE. If you set it in yout .bash_profile or .bashrc, it will 
only atke effect for shells, resulting in the behaviopur you describe: the 
file/dir is created in a shell with an utf-8 locale, and read in KDE with 
another locale.

Try setting $LANG using pam_env, or start KDE with startx from an utf-8
