Bug #5483: Pathname doesn???t deal with encodings properly
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5483

Author: Nikolai Weibull
Status: Open
Priority: High

Category: core
Target version: 
ruby -v: ruby 1.9.3dev (2011-09-13 revision 33263) [i386-mingw32]


Encoding.find('filesystem') # => Windows-1252
(Pathname('//Server/Share'.encode('filesystem'))+'Entry'.encode('filesystem')).to_path.encoding # => ASCII-8BIT

This actually seems to be a problem with File.join, as File.join doesn???t retain any sort of encoding of the input arguments.
