The conditional is incorrect and unnecessary. filename encoding depends on 
filesystem, not the VM platform. For instance, I could have a UTF-8 file on a 
USB flash and use it across different VMs.

AFAIK, FAT fs does not support UTF-8. NTFS, HPFS (Mac) and all current Linux 
filesystems support UTF-8 in filenames.
