I have a Windows shortcut with Unicode character U+2013 (EN DASH) in its name.
readshortcut fails to read it, but if I rename it removing the EN DASH,
readshortcut reads it correctly.
I have a patched version of readshortcut that fully supports Unicode.
I will provide it in a few days.
Actually, I have it waiting for contribution for a while already, but did not
find time yet to patch mkshortcut as well...
I seem to have forgotten to provide this. I had meanwhile reworked mkshortcut
for full Unicode support as well.
