           Summary: can't open files with accents in name
           Product: noatun
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kde-multimedia at kde.org
        ReportedBy: whalesuit at softhome.net

Version:           2.2.1 (using KDE 3.1.0)
Installed from:    compiled sources
Compiler:          gcc version 3.2 20020903 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2-7)
OS:          Linux (i686) release 2.4.20-2.9custom

When a file has an accent in the name (on a FAT partition), Noatun loads the file into its playlist, but cannot play it, and so skips it. 

Open playlist
Browse for files to add
In the File-Open dialog, note that files with accents in the name are marked as read-only, though it is not mounted as such, and Properties does show a MetaInfo tag with ID3 data.
Click Open to add file to playlist.  Note that file appears to be in playlist
Double click on file to play.  Note that file does not play.

Expected behaviour Files with accents in names should load normally.
