The issue can be reproduced with the following steps: 

1. Launch BI Administration Tool in Japanese.

2. File > Multiuser > Whole Rpd Checkout...

3. Select the Primary repository(.rpd) to check out and try to save subset repository "メタデータ1.rpd" in Japanese.

4. Click Save and input repository password.

The subset repository name "メタデータ1.rpd" has been garbled, and could not save.
