I'm running a cross-compiled version of wpa_supplicant 0.6.3. I know 
linux use UTF-8 for internal processing and wpa_supplicant under linux 
works ok for me. Also i know that windows not use UTF-8 for internal 
processing and because of this, my Identity field into configuration 
file is creating me problems with an accent. Changing the format type 
with notepad not works, because the parsing fails at the end of network 
block (incredible):
Priority group 0
  id=0 ssid='kely'
Failed to parse configuration file 'wpa_supplicant.conf'

Should i kill my windows installation?
