I don't see the problem, either.
It sounds like you're saying you would create the file using a normalised
string for the filename, then later try to open the file using an
un-normalised string. Why would you do that?
I would have thought that your program would consistently use a normalised
string, or an un-normalised one, for both creating and opening the file.

Subject: Re: Unicode Normalization on MS-Windows
Thanks for your quick response.
Do you know by any chance that the upcoming Windows 2003/Windows .NET would
have the capability to handle Unicode normalization?
To answer your question, basically right now if I write the file name by
using normalized U+F019 which would be U+795E, I won't be able to find it
and reopen it any more ...
