Description:
If opened script's path (either directories either filename) contains non-Latin character, the entire pathname in the corresponding {UUID}.info file is truncated to last Latin character.

How to repeat:
I copied the file with Cyrillic name to "pure-latin" folder, then made several copies with different names.

dirname: c:\users\sysop\documents\sqtest

original name: проверка.sql (all chars left to ".sql" are Cyrillic)
1st copy: test.sql (all chars are Latin)
2nd copy: teжst.sql (one char between "te" and "st" is Russian letter "zh")

Autosaved {UUID}.info contents:

1.
type=file
filename=C:\Users\sysop\Documents\sqtest

2.
type=file
filename=C:\Users\sysop\Documents\sqtest\test.sql
orig_encoding=
title=test
show_special=0
word_wrap=0
caret_pos=0
first_visible_line=0

3.
type=file
filename=C:\Users\sysop\Documents\sqtest\te

All starting 1st non-Latin character was truncated and the workspace is irrecoverable

Suggested fix:
Check the "unicodeness"?

Removed 6.3.9, installed 6.2.5: bug is gone, all paths stored correctly.
