It seems you're trying to edit file with non-ascii filename, or maybe your editor configured to be non-ascii path. Anyway, Bazaar Explorer has failed to inform you that it can't open the required file in your editor for some reason.

Check the settings of your editor.

Changed in bzr-explorer:
status: New → Confirmed
