When a Python script is run by drag-and-dropping another file on it in Windows explorer, the other file's path becomes sys.argv[1]. However, when the path contains a Unicode characters (e.g. α), it gets crippled – it is replaced by ordinary question mark.

Maybe this is not Python's fault. Calling directly GetCommandLineW already contains that question mark. I'm just curious whether the original path even can be reconstructed.
