(Ingemar: one can easily test import statements without pyqt, let alone qt ;-)

With 3.2b2 on our Win7, 64 bit machine, files with a Japanese name run but apparently cannot be imported.

a.py: print('something')
^|.py: print('other') # ^| == imitation of katakana name
c.py: import a; import ^|
ImportError: No module named ^|

Tried in both japanese- and then ascii-named directories.
So I am not convinced that #9425 is finished. What might I have misunderstood?
