Nginx/windows autoindex module URL charset problem

OS: Windows 7 (non-unicode code page: 936 Simplified Chinese)

URL in autoindex page is encoded in code page 936 (two byts per
character), all file containing Chinese character cannot be accessed in
autoindex listing.

Example:
Windows.Server.2003网络专业指南.pdf original filename

Windows.Server.2003%cd%f8%c2%e7%d7%a8%d2%b5%d6%b8%c4%cf.pdf wrong
result in nginx/windows 0.8.54 autoindex URL

Windows.Server.2003%E7%BD%91%E7%BB%9C%E4%B8%93%E4%B8%9A%E6%8C%87%E5%8D%97.pdf
correct URL in UTF-8

Hi.

I met the same problem with cyrilic code page.
It seems the problem is in utf8 - windows does not run programs with
one-byte locale “utf-8”, while other OSes (freebsd, linux) returns file
names to the program in utf8.

I was able to work around this problem by running nginx via cygwin on
windows.
I compiled nginx from source under cygwin and the problem disappers.

Good luck. Sorry for my english.

P.S. my config for now:

http {
include mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;
sendfile on;
keepalive_timeout 65;
server {
listen 808;
server_name localhost;
location “/Усяляка бяка” {
charset utf-8;
root /home/html;
autoindex on;
}
error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
location = /50x.html {
root html;
}
}
}
