I don't believe this is going to work in a LANG=xx_XX.UTF-8 environment. 
I had to change all of my bash scripts that relied on file name encoding 
-- which I copied over to Ubuntu 9.10 from my previous workstation 
(Mandrake 10.2 / LANG=en_US.ISO8859-1) -- to Double Byte Encoding.

What is being used by the OP:
$ set | grep LANG
