I noted that Cyrillic letters in a source file path are corrupted on my
Windows 7 computers (Russian version). For example, a transcript of
xelatexcompilation begins with the following text:

This is XeTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-0.9999.3 (TeX Live 2013/W32TeX)
(format=xelatex 2013.7.10)  11 JUL 2013 10:08
entering extended mode
 restricted \write18 enabled.
 %&-line parsing enabled.
LaTeX2e <2011/06/27>
Babel <3.9f> and hyphenation patterns for 78 languages loaded.
Package: fixltx2e 2006/09/13 v1.1m fixes to LaTeX
LaTeX Info: Redefining \em on input line 420.

Here, the line


should be

d:/Users/Kotelnikov/SkyDrive/Мои статьи/LHW/HeliconsBigDoc.tex.

As a result, inverse search from SumatraPDF does not work.  Note that
pdflatex engine has no such trouble.
Xelatex.exe from MikTeX bundle also works without such a trouble.
