Cannot use Chinese in user description

Operating system version:


I'm using FileZilla Server v0.9.20 on Windows XP SP2. In "Shared Folders", I can use Chinese in both directories and aliases. However, if I add a new user in "Users", type some Chinese characters in the description and click OK, then I get the following error message and the user is not added.

Protocol error: Invalid data, could not import account settings.
Could not change account settings

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open FileZilla Server Interface
  2. Go to Edit -> Users
  3. Add a new user
  4. Add "中文" to the description field
  5. Click OK

If I modify "FileZilla Server.xml" directly and restart the service, I get the following message when I want to enter the "Users" setting.

Retrieving account settings, please wait...
Done retrieving account settings
Protocol error: Invalid data

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open "FileZilla Server.xml" in an editor
  2. Add an user manually.

<User Name="test">
<Option Name="Pass"/>
<Option Name="Group"/>
<Option Name="Bypass server userlimit">0</Option>
<Option Name="User Limit">0</Option>
<Option Name="IP Limit">0</Option>
<Option Name="Enabled">1</Option>
<Option Name="Comments">中文</Option>
<Option Name="ForceSsl">0</Option>
<SpeedLimits DlType="0" DlLimit="10" ServerDlLimitBypass="0" UlType="0" UlLimit="10" ServerUlLimitBypass="0">

  1. Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services and restart "FileZilla Server FTP server"
  2. Open "FileZilla Server Interface"
  3. Click the "Users" icon in the toolbar
