Gilles, I'd like to know how you were able to find out that opendir and readdir do not perform any reencoding?

Thanks for the answer. You say that some drivers are imposing constraints on the byte sequences. This is happening at a lower level than opendir and readdir, and so it seems like what you're saying is that the filename bytes in the struct dirents reported by readdir are not identical to what's actually on disk. Either that or the bytes that we give opendir are not the actual bytes that are checked on disk. In other words, something is still being done behind our backs, perhaps at the lower driver level. Am I right about this?

no I can't. Depending on the application, I will get a listing of /media/external/Movies, but no matter the application I can't view the contents of any Korean-titled directories.
