Dear Josef,

> Dear Akira, weirdness lives on! ;-)

My experimental consequence:

(1) In the case of pdflatex:

If the encoding is UTF-8, command like
is not necessary.
In the other cases, command like
is necessary. Otherwise, URLs are broken and
correct maps are not obtained for non-ascii names.

(2) In the case of xelatex and lualatex, use 'UTF-8' encoding only!!.

lualatex result for UTF-8 encoding case:

url =
url length = 307 bytes
