I can confirm this. Same for Scandinavian characters like æäøöå, on Windows servers. If I open Explorer on the server, or use FTP, I see that the files names are incorrect. If I correct the file names to the actual file name of the uploaded file then the problem is fixed immediately.

This is specific to Windows builds of PHP (see my comment in #15955).

Not sure if there's a good solution until PHP supports working with Windows filenames in Unicode.

Thanks for the fix and the coming patch.

Now with your plugin i got a security message error when i try to import the file.

"This type of file is not supported for security reasons" and so any importation is impossible

Replying to FxBe:

"This type of file is not supported for security reasons"

Is it the same "aéèâ.txt" file you are trying to upload? Seems to be uploading correctly on my install (with the plugin).

Yes exactly the same, but i can't upload any file at all, turn your plugin off and everything turn back to normal

To give some precision, i tried on another computer and the plugin is working perfectly.
I must have an admin right problem on my own computer.
I'll wait for the patch, thanks for you for all your efforts
