I need more info to reproduce the problem, namely used dir and file names, QGis version, OS you're on.

I tested it creating directories and files with random Chinese characters (from Wikipedia).

The input dir name was /home/brushtyler/tes語t, which contains 2 files: 25吴吳0020.tif and 2500方10.tif.

The output vrt file was /home/brushtyler/tes語t/ou客家t.vrt

The tools ends with success and created the expected result.

I tested using QGIS 1.8 in MacOSX and it I get the same result as yours. The person who encountered this problem was using windows, unfortunately, I don't have access to the person's machine anymore (or any windows at the moment).

Please close if no other reports of this case was submitted.
