I'm encountering a character encoding issue with:

Generalized Biffing v2.4

WeiDU 246

BG2:EE 2.5

on Linux.

 

The Vecna mod installs a bunch of files that start with a non-ASCII letter, such as "override/µcxa2e.bam".

Generalized Biffing croaks on the first such file it encounters:

 

Installing [Generalized Biffing -> Biff all files (recommended by the Big World Dudes)] [v2.4]
Creating 1 directory
Creating 1 directory
Warning: BASH_FOR encountered Unix.Unix_error(Unix.ENOENT, "stat", "override/\226\181cxa2e.bam")
It will proceed with a partial file list
[data/tb#gen0.bif] will contain 24 resources totalling 597631 bytes
Warning: BASH_FOR encountered Unix.Unix_error(Unix.ENOENT, "stat", "override/\226\181cxa2e.bam")
It will proceed with a partial file list


In my case, this resulted in only a tiny fraction of my override files getting biffed (24 out of 45,377).

 

As a work-around, I'm manually moving all files with non-ASCII letters out of the override folder, apply Generalized Biffing, and then move the offending files back.

Is there a better solution?

My Linux uses the "en_US.UTF-8" locale.
