If I try create table with non-latin name (cyrillic in my case) then mysql create
files in utf8 charset, but, in case of Russian WinXP, it must be cp1251. So, sometime, I could get undeletable files.

How to repeat:
Simple call 
 CREATE TABLE `something by russian`

Suggested fix:
Need configurable 'character_set_system' or 'character_set_filesystem'

Dear Andrey Volkov,
'DROP TABLE' works properly with that tables, so they cannot be specified as 'undeleteable';
If you find repeatable case, when mysql creates some table and then cannot delete it, please submit it for us and reopen this bug report.
