If you try to open a file and its path contains accented characters, the file will not load, giving error : ".../is not a valid or recognized data source".
From osgeo4w setup.

I just tried with latest builds, it's still broken for .xls files. It seems to be the only problematic filetype. It's not in the supported formats when you import a layer nor does it show up in the browser window, is it possible that QGIS doesn't know how to handle the paths for this new filetype yet ?
