Victor asked "Which web page should updated/fixed?"

Answer: The Python 3.2 download page.

But what should it say?

The main point is that people like me, who remember seeing a statement about this a few months ago, may expect unicode to work in every conceivable situation, and a prominent warning that it's not *all* fixed yet, with a link to details in the documentation, would save them from trying things that don't work.

By the way, I hadn't grasped a simple point from issue 3080: I tested on *English* Windows by putting a Greek character in the path to some python modules. But the usual situation is where a *Greek* version of Windows has some Greek characters in the path, and from what you just wrote, that's OK now.
