0.87: Renaming a folder with a non-ASCII character name corrupts the database

Postby shokuzai » Thu Oct 05, 2017 9:35 pm

XnView: MP 0.87 - 64 bit
OS: Windows 10 - 64bit

Effect: Corrupted database

Detail:
- The category assignments and the tags are removed from the files inside the folder.
- But those files are still shown when browsing through Categories Filter.
- In Setting -> Catalog -> Catalog -> Cached directory, two entries are created, for example:

D:\Pictures\漢字 (without backslash)
D:\Pictures\漢字\ (with backslash)
where 漢字 is the new name.

What are affected: folders whose names consist of non-ASCII characters, namely 漢字(Chinese characters) and かな(kana).

To reproduce:
Rename any of those folders to another such name inside XnView MP.
