This is an interesting issue that should never ever happen.

After poking Arch Linux for a few hours, I finally managed to reproduce this issue on openSUSE Tumbleweed with:

% locale

% LC_ALL=C locale

by building ckb-next in a directory whose absolute path contains "Новая папка" ('New folder'), and getting same uic errors.

The differences in Arch and SUSE locale handling are to be determined, if at all, since I tried to reproduce on Arch by changing the locale dynamically (i.e. generating locale, unsetting LANG, sourcing /etc/profile.d/ and starting a new shell instance) without complete relogin. Maybe doing so triggers this magic bug.

I took a glance at uic source code, read Qt5 documentation about the QFile and QString functions it uses for encoding and decoding, and just a little bit icu source code. So far no success. In uic the open() function is the one that fails, but it can be due to setting an incorrect filename previously and not failing early. At the same time, it completely relies on icu API, which has been there for years and probably can't have such a trivial bug.
