[Pkg-kde-extras] Bug#485081: soundkonverter: SoundKonverter doesn't properly handle Unicode filenames

Package: soundkonverter
Version: 0.3.6-1.1
Severity: important

Sound converter does not properly handle UTF-8 characters in output
filenames, for example the o-umlaut or u-umlaut in motley crue. It takes
the input filename properly but the filename and ID3 is output with 
ASCII names.

rrix at wanton:~$ ls /var/music/Mötley\ Crüe/Shout\ At\ The\ Devil\ 
\[Crücial\ Crüe]
Mötley Crüe - 01 - In The Beginning.mp3            Mötley Crüe - 09 - 
Knock 'Em Dead, Kid.mp3
rrix at wanton:~$ ls /var/music/ogg/Mötley\ Crüe/Shout\ At\ The\ Devil\ 
[Crücial\ Crüe]
01 - In The Beginning.ogg

The ID3 tags are also written with the bad data.
