Thanks for your report.

This problem has been fixed in branch 'master', not released yet.

As mentioned in https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?47882, when downloading a file with the command below.

wget '中文中文中文中文'

The resulting ouput:

jeffbai [ ~ ] $ wget '中文中文中文中文'

Shows an incorrect output filename. The file name requested, "中文中文中文中文" is output'd to a completely different one, "中\346%96%87中\346%96%87中\346%96%87中\346%96%87". And it is also problematic in a sense that the output'd file cannot be deleted easily.

I have tested this on wget releases 1.16.0 - 1.17.1, in which case, all returned with same, problematic results.
