[XeTeX] graphic filename in Chinese

BTW, When XeTeX try to find my graphics or fonts specified in the
source (like my example above),
it usually search the disk for more than 1.5 minutes before throwing
the error message. Why?
(I state in the texmf.cnf very clearly that kpse should use ls-R to
search all directories:
TEXMF         =
and moreover, my texmf tree is very small, all ls-R files in
directories are only 60KB in total.

even if the right font/picture filename is given, the first xetex run
is still very slow. a simple example like
\dorecurse{20}{\input zapf}
will take 1.5 min to search the disk. second run also takes more than
10 seconds.

Why is it so slow?
