WFM with a current SeaMonkey trunk build.
Reporter: What Thunderbird Version did you try this with? BTW: Consider upgrading your browser, Mozilla 1.8b2 is quite old and full of security bugs.

This WFM with TB 1.0.6 as well as more current builds.  I think this problem or something very similar did exist at one point in the suite, a while back -- at least, my testing directory has a folder with an umlauted character in the name, which I must have created to test something...
