scan hangs when it finds non standard char in file name

not sure if this has been reported yet, but I couldn't find it in the forums.

while scanning, it showed an error dialog, but was stuck on the wait cursor. Neither the ok button, dialog x, or alt-f4 could be selected; had to end task on it.
The error was Error 2000/2001 in dhShortPath
<description> <path><file>
The file name in question is Eluveitie - Vęn - 06 - Jzag.mp3.
If the page replaces chars when I submit, I can zip it.

Re: scan hangs when it finds non standard char in file name

Please email me the file (john.t.mccaffrey@snet.net).

Also, when you send it, please give me the exact name of the path, since maybe that's the problem.

Thanks for the report!

Is anyone else seeing this problem?

If so, please send me a sample file -- I haven't been able to reproduce it here yet.

Send the file to:
john.t.mccaffrey@snet.net

Thanks!

Re: scan hangs when it finds non standard char in file name

I've been able to reproduce the problem.

It is due to Unicode filenames (not simply a different character set).

The next release will at least be able to scan the file by using the short filename equivalent.  I hope to be able to incorporate the Unicode name as well...

Please send me some samples of problem files.
