When changing into a directory with local special chars (like German umlauts) in the console, the directories are not properly shown in the files dock widget and in the current directory box of the main window. When changing the directory in one of those widgets, the console shows an error message and does not change into this directory.

I have created a changeset at
to fix this bug. Before pushing it to savannah it would be nice if someone else with directories containing local special characters could test this patch.
