Well, an utf-8 string can always be autodetected, even with a string as
short as a single char (that's one of the nice things with utf-8).

So, a nice default behaviour for gtk2 would be, if the locale is not utf-8,
to handle all file names that have 8bit bytes that don't conform to a utf-8
sequence as if they were in the locale encoding, it will work nice in almost
all cases.
