Ah great. Indeed, there is a series of steps you need to take to make it 
1) You need to fix LanguageEnvironment class defaultFileNameConverter
   (make it return UTF8TextConverter new)
2) You need to load a TTF font with the glyphs. For this you need:
    * Load the TTF loading fixes that Christos posted
    * Drag and drop a TTF font with the right glyphs on Squeak (Arial 
works fine)
3) Make this font the default font for text and lists.

Once you got all of this the file list shows the correct names.
