It is very inconvenient that the browser now doesn't work at all, though. Perhaps we can overrule the resource-database setting for this single useStringInPlace widget, and set international = False there, for the time being.

Agreed, it's not acceptable for the browser to be completely broken. The approach you mention should work. I didn't get it to work last night, but I think I know what I was doing wrong. I'll try again probably tonight (in my time zone).

I couldn't get the approach of setting international = False only in the browser widget tree to work. I kept getting segfaults deep inside Xlib. I think Xlib gets confused by the mixture of internationalized and non-internationalized widgets and ends up smashing memory somewhere by confusing a char* with a w_char*. But I didn't really dig into it.

Instead I went ahead and internationalized the file browser. It seems to work fine now, though I only tested it on a filename with German characters in it. The diffs were surprisingly small.

I've pushed the change into savannah.
