Problems with KDE_stat on systems where the default locale is not utf-8

When QFile::encodeName() can't convert an unicode character into the 
system locale (== all locales except utf-8), the non-convertable 
character is replaced by a question mark. Now that the filename is 
broken, KDE_stat() can't do anything usefull and fails.
For me looks like KDE_stat() and others are broken by design (when 
system locale is not utf-8) and we need a unicode version of KDE_stat().

Any ideas how to fix this issue? Maybe a new class KLocalFile which 
wraps all KDE_foo functions?
