It seems that there is the same bug as in the old utf8 patches: move and
copy should preserve the original broken sequences, i.e. it should be possible
to copy a file with 8859 name even if mc is in utf-8 mode. Both versions
of utf-8 patch replace the invalid utf-8 sequences with questionmarks in 
target file name.
