Although there is no theoretical reason why Greenstone shouldn't work
with Unicode filenames, in practice this hasn't had much testing and I
imagine there will be a few bugs (I've just fixed one in util.pm).
The Perl that is used to run the Greenstone scripts must also be told to
use Unicode -- with Perl 5.6 and 5.8.0 this means adding the "-C" flag, eg:
perl -S -C import.pl mycolname
I'm not sure about newer versions of Perl.
I've been unable to reproduce your problem, however. Could you please
provide a very small collection that shows this problem when built?
(Which version of Greenstone are you using?)
