[darcs-users] Darcs is broken on Windows with GHC 6.10.1 and "national" characters

After some testing I noticed that Darcs (and probably other Haskell
applications too) has serious issues handling filenames with "strange"
characters (accented letters are not strange enough, euro symbol or
russian characters are) on Windows when compiled with GHC 6.10.1. It
works fine with GHC 6.8.3.
Until the GHC team fix those issues, all the "semi-official" Windows
builds starting with 2.1.1 will be done with GHC 6.8.3.
