I think the problem is that calling the native 'primitive-load'
procedure on a filename with UTF-8 encoding with a character outside
the ASCII range (when the locale encoding is also UTF-8) fails to work
unless you call '(set-locale LC_ALL "")' in the program first.

Of course you can't do that when passing guile a filename as a program
argument.  It does seem like a weakness, even if not a bug.
