It might be worth it to check whether the problem can be fixed with the help of iconv.

There is no converter inside TeXmacs from/to GBK, and I suppose that TeXmacs see GBK as 8bit ISO garbage, since there is no way to know if a data stream is GBK or other.

Is it possible to have Windows configured with utf8 ? Under MacOS and GNU/Linux, utf8 is now by default and TeXmacs works properly.

Sometimes I use Texmacs in Windows with Chinese whose filename encoded in GBK, so the name in "recent" or "GO" were displayed as garbage characters.

The inputbar of input method almost disappeared all the time.

Thanks for all the effort you guys made to make Texmacs a great tool!
