Screen shot with save file dialog

When I name a file title as <Japanese back slash>xxxxxx<Japanese back slash>,
it will give me as "_xxxxxx_" in save file dialog.

screen shot for back slash as page title on windows

The back slash is displayed as Yen sign on windows, but as "\" in Mac OS X and
linux RH8.0.

For save file dialog as in comment #7, I can change "_" as Japanese back slash
(like yen sign) in save file dialog, but I will failed to save the file.  I'm
not sure if back slash is a legal character for file name or not though.

For page title, on windows it's displayed as Japanese back slash, but on Mac OS
X and linux RH8.0, it's displayed as English back slash "\" with Japanese
locale.  There is no garbage displayed.
