I've been meaning to add at least one test around that since it  
appears to be a good intention that hasn't been checked.  The APR docs  
aren't very clear what encoding they expect the file name to be in.

The behavior could very well be platform specific.  What platform are  
you running on and what is you current code page or encoding (type  
locale on Unix or Control Panel/Regional Settings on Windows)?

Are you getting the expected content in your log files?  There are  
unit tests around wide character log file content in the unit tests,  
so if your content is also messed up, that would suggest that  
log4cxx's CharsetEncoder and CharsetDecoder doesn't properly adjust to  
your platform.  If those are good, then it is something specific to  
File and its interaction with APR.
