I'm not sure you can use non english names in english locale.
Instead, should you use another locale that covers all characters you use?

I guess locales in libc on Ubuntu 10.4 is just broken or behaves
undesirable as a feature. When I created english locale on Windows,
it returnes expected results in both cases.

Personally, I don't trust locale functions in libc on Linux platforms...
