I tested directory_iterator and fstream for Chinese file names
on Windows XP Japanese edition.
directory_iterator worked correctly, but fstream didn't.

In detail::narrow_path_api(), GetShortPathNameW() is used for getting
the short 8.3 form names. This function returns an Unicode string
which contains non-ASCII characters.
So, mapping from Unicode to ANSI is necessary.

Please see the the attachment.
