Hi Massimiliano, 

  do you think this may be related to those things you fixed a couple of days ago?


I do not think that it is related to our problems. Actually there are no problems on the Qt side as far as I undestand.
With Joris we discussed a bit the issue and decided that on the long term TeXmacs urls should be internally utf8 encoded.
The point is that unix filesystems use uft8. A reorganization of the texmacs code is needed since each time we convert an url into a string
we should decide if the string representation should be utf8 or cork. To speak to the unix api we need utf8 strings while for displaying string
we need cork (since the url can then be mixed with other cork strings). 
For the moment I made some changes  limited to the Qt plugin to have all urls in utf8. This allow to open strange filenames but for the moment this imply also that some name sometimes is rendered incorreclty (but work fine).
