The filename is ok in the 'Sent' directory of Tb but corrupted in the recipient

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach a file which name contains an accent (é, è, û, ...) by any method
(from the compose window or by 'drag & drop')
2. Send file
3. Open the mail from the recipient webmail or mail client

Actual Results:  
The filename is changed to 'unnamed' without extension. Adding the original
extension allows opening the file. 

Expected Results:  
The file should keep its correct name with accents.

It's important to notice that this bug occurs only when ones tries to open the
attachment from another mail client or from webmail. It doesn't occur in Tb's
interface. The incorrect filename is "file.bin" or "unnamed" without extension.
I can reproduce it with Thunderbird/1.4 ID:2005090710.

This bug accures when attached file is named with צהו.

When attaching the exact same file, without צ ה ו, the filename is correct when reciveing it though.

I am now using Thunderbird 1.5 (20051201) WinXP SP2.
Files are here renamed to: ATT000001.pdf (correct extension, but filename is changed)

In earlier versions of TB rc1 and rc2 the problem was even larger.
Attached files were then renamed to ATT00001.dat (whatever extension original filename had, it was renamed to .dat)

Filenamechange accured when reciveing the mails in Microsoft Outlook Express 6, and webmail.
When sending and reciving mails in Thunderbird, the filename match original filename.

This appears to be a duplicate of bug 309566 (rather than depending on it).
Gregor Samsa, if you agree, please mark this bug as a dupe.
