Screenshot of opening a local directory

It seems that WebKitGTK always chooses the text encoding wrongly when browsing a local directory. It is very easy to reproduce. Just type 'file:///' in the address bar, and you will find bad characters appear in the page. Instead of asking users to click 'override text encoding' every time they want to browse local directories or find local HTML files, can WebKitGTK simply default to UTF-8 encoding when a local directory is opened?
