Add vector layer ,using shapefile, which path has non ascii character (Japanese SJIS) open fail.
in log OGR Data source is invalid ()
When rename that file and path name using ascii characters, I was able to open the file successfully.
Old version(1.8, 1.7, 1.6...) We could open shapefiles which pathe name as Japanese characters.
I found this problem at OSGeo4W binary QGIS 5e29777

Thank you for advice.
My binary is linked with GDAL1.92
and GDAL_FILENAME_IS_UTF8=NO is set.
Then I set null to GDAL_FILENAME_IS_UTF8 then open the shapefile with path name include Japanese.
I could open the file successfully.

No problem here with the same revision (5e29777, OSGeo4W qgis-dev 1.9.0-299).
Are you using GDAL 1.9? Can you confirm that GDAL_FILENAME_IS_UTF8=NO is NOT set to environment variable?
