Yes. For example, my test results:

Case A: (Japanese Only)
L"\u3053\u3093\u306B\u3061\u306F.txt" -> L"\u3053\u3093\u306B~1.TXT"

Case B: (Chinese, but contains CJK Unified Ideograph)
L"\u4F60\u597D.txt" -> L"\u597DD0E7~1.TXT"

Case C: (Chinese Only)
L"\u4F60\u597D.txt" -> L"7464~1.TXT"

I think that your environment corresponds to the case C.

> In any case, I applied your patch to CVS.
