Files and directories with special characters (german Umlaute) are not shown in directory list

Hi FileZilla Team,

I recently discovered that files with umlaute (ö,ü,ä, …) are not shown in the directory listing or the directorys itself.

The Windows version works fine, it’s only am Mac problem. I use the newest FileZilla version. The problem exists on Snow Leopard and Lion.

I think this issue is also described in ticket 7406

Hello Filezilla Team,

I can confirm, that some files uploaded by some Windows-client with german Umlaute are not shown in the directory listing. It seems to be independant from the operating system (here: Linux).

When changing the Charset in the servermanager from Automatic to User defined Charset = "windows-1252" the files are visible and can be transfered.

The files are always visible, when accessing the directory with e.g. Konquerors (KDE) FTP-Manager.

Thank you in advance!
