Put quickly, GTK_BROKEN_FILENAMES *only* is about the encoding that
GLib takes for files on disk.

 off - UTF-8 always
 on  - Encoding of locale

It has nothing to do with the handling iles that don't conform to this

Fixing GtkFileSelection to handle misencoded filenames would be
much work, and is unlikely to happen. New file selector will
try to do something like Nautilus, where there is a distinction
between the "display name" which is UTF-8, and the filename on disk,
which is a byte sequence.
