I did find one case where things still don't seem to work properly:

If there's a file containing a newline, then if LANG=C, dired can
correctly deal with it (e.g., I can put the cursor on it and hit RET,
and it visits that file), but if LANG=ja_JP.eucjp, then it correctly
displays all _other_ files, but you can't use RET to visit the
newline-in-the-file-name file (it says `File no longer exists; type `g'
to update Dired buffer').

Since other files work OK in that case, the offsets must be correct, but
perhaps the chunk-decoding screws up the newline somehow?  Does there
need to be some sort of fiddling with eol-type?

A zen-buddhist walked into a pizza shop and
said, "Make me one with everything."
