Fedora 7, cups-1.2.12, system locale - ru_UA.KOI8-U

at performance of a command:
lpr cyrillic_file_name
nothing is printed...

in a conclusion "strace lpr ..." received:

execve("/usr/bin/lpr", ["lpr", "test-\324\305\323\324"], [/* 35 vars */]) = 0


access("test-я┌п╣я│я┌", R_OK)           = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)


In line "access..." the name of a file is already recoded in utf, but such file in file system is not present (is only with an initial name in the coding koi8-u).

Why cups will recode a name of a file?
