Trouble with internationalized path under windows

I have a problem which ought to have an obvious solution, but I haven't found
one despite searching for many hours. The problem occurs on Windows.
This is a version of my problem reduced to its essentials:
I have a file foo.py::
and a file bar.py :
baz = 42
If I store these two files in say C:\Users\Admin\test everything works fine.
If I store them in C:\Users\Admin\testф, I get an import error when running
foo.py. The letter at the end of test is a Russian "F", if it looks strange on
Am using WIndows 7 with a Swedish locale. The program uses Unicode
successfully internally, and the Windows help says that the locale only
applies to non-Unicode programs. I have tried with using characters from the
Latin-1 character set in the path, ones that are not in the ASCII character
set. In this case, things work fine.
What am missing?
