Sorry,
this is the same test with R-patched (same results as well).

> setwd("c:/jml/Valoraci贸n F1/04 BA/")
> filename <- "Valoraci贸n F1 PAG.mdb"

> file.path(getwd(), filename)
[1] "c:/jml/Valoraci脙鲁n F1/04 BA/Valoraci贸n F1 PAG.mdb" <<- wrong

> file.path("c:/jml/Valoraci贸n F1/04 BA", filename)
[1] "c:/jml/Valoraci贸n F1/04 BA/Valoraci贸n F1 PAG.mdb" <<- ok

> file.path(paste(getwd()), filename)
[1] "c:/jml/Valoraci贸n F1/04 BA/Valoraci贸n F1 PAG.mdb" <<-ok

> getwd()

[1] "c:/jml/Valoraci贸n F1/04 BA"
