Description

When create a spatial index with shape file that contain Japanese in the file name,always fail.
This bug occurs in "general" "Create spatial index" of the Layer Properties.
I was confirmed by Windows7 .
I was able to create a spatial index in the file that was changed to not a Japanese file name and path name.
I guess that it might be to also occur in other languages ​​other than Japanese.

I had success make create spatial index with shape file that contain Japanese in the file name.
It require processing of Encoding fixer plugin for files I used.
I will try to test for some files.

If Shapefile has not encoding information, it is necessaryto to use Fix Shapefile Encoding plugin setting LDID byte to 0x13 or making CPG file.
