EVALUATION I need more information. Which OS is this? Which locale is it running in? What is the multi-byte character? Is it possible that this is running in a English (or non-multi-byte locale) and trying to install into a multi-byte path? ###@###.### 2005-05-23 19:46:31 GMT This is different from 4895647. 4895647 is related to installation to multibyte path on an English locale environment. But this bug is reproducible in localized French OS. ###@###.### 2005-06-07 21:19:43 GMT
