Problem with tkFileDialog.askdirectory(), Windows, and non-ascii paths

I have the current Windows binary install of Python 2.3.4 on my
Windows XP system.
I am pained to discover that tkFileDialog.askdirectory() returns a
mangled path when a directory is selected which has non-ascii Unicode
path, as in Kanji characters, i.e. the usull "????" in place of the
original UTF-8 code points. .
After some time spent Google'ing. I don't find a discussion of this.
Is there some option or configuration change I can make to fix this?
I can roll my own file-dialog , but I prefer to re-use code.
