Traktor Pro 3.6.0 325 Data Base can´t handle folders and files with umlauts

Hey there, I‘m a german user. In our language a lot of words have umaluts (ü/ä/ö), in my music directory I've got a folder named "Künstler" - so far so good, no problem up to now.

NOW (Version 3.6.0 325), I wondered why tracks are suddenly doubled in the Data Base, looking at the File Paths there appears a second path to my "Künstler" folder.

For example: Originally: .../Künstler/ABBA/Mamma Mia

NOW there‘s a second VIRTUAL folder/Path: .../Ku nstler/ABBA/Mamma Mia

The file itself is not doubled, there is still one file in the folder. So it‘s not possible to delete the doubled (virtual) file shown in ".../Ku nstler/..." path, the one physically stored file/track will be erased.

My solution was to rename my "Künstler" folder to "Kuenstler", run "Check Consistency" and point then all the missing tracks to the new "Kuenstler" folder.

AND all SONGS with UMLAUTS now got a virtual "Brother", are also virtually doubled.

For example: "Mein kleiner grüner Kaktus" is now also shown as "Mein kleiner gru ner Kaktus"

So, please fix this BUG.

    Actually variations on this have been a problem for a while. I have a number of Obscure tracks from Germany and Scandanavia that have umlats and a couple of other special characters that I had to strip out to get them to process and show up in the collection and searches. Rufus Du Sol is one of the better known ones.

    This thread is about that issue. The problem seems to be identified.

    See page 2 the post from Jonas from NI:
