Put here the output you get when you try to save a file with accented 
characters on its filename, but do it from command line, do not use GUI 
applications because sometimes, more than helping, quietly silence the 
underlaying problem.

For instance:

sm01@stt008:~$ echo sample > áéíóú.txt
sm01@stt008:~$ file áéíóú.txt
áéíóú.txt: ASCII text
sm01@stt008:~$ cat áéíóú.txt
