The example works fine here on Windows for lualatex, and xelatex.

However in other cases, for example Japanese Kanji names,
\StringEncodingConvert sometimes convert a clean UTF-8 string
in a source into a broken string for lualatex and xelatex.
In the case of pdflatex, all is OK. I don't know why.
Since sources in xelatex and lualatex are generically UTF-8,
I think that it is better to redefine \StringEncodingConvert
not to convert the string.
Please see an attached patch: getmap.sty.diff and
please test it for lualatex and xelatex.
