documents with filenames in cyrillic can't be opened

Asked by pruhster

After upgrading to Lucid and the OOo 3.2 that came with it I can't open any office documents that have Cyrillic charecters in their path / names (including anything on the desktop which is /home/user/Плот on a system in Bulgarian). In nautilus everything looks fine but when I try to open a document i get an error that it doesn't exist. Within OOo's file browser folders and files in cyrillic are displayed with funny characters and can't be opened either (same error).

Any ideas?
