Bug#528817: audacity: Can't 'drag and drop'-open a file with non-ascii characters in pathname

Package: audacity
Version: 1.3.5-2+lenny1
Severity: normal

Environment: KDE from Debian stable, installation in spanish.

I right-clicked an audio file and chosed "Open with" Audacity. It opened ok.
I drag-and-drop'ed a second file from the same directory to the Audacity Window. An error appeared about an inexistant file:

21:50:31: can't open file '[SOMEWHERE]/Música/Desireless/Desireless - Voyage Voyage.mp3' (error 2: No existe el fichero o el directorio)

The detailed error window repeated the same error line five times.

As it can be seen, the problem is that the subdirectory is called Música and Audacity tries to find it as Música , and it happens only when drag-and-drop. Normal File->Open and desktop right-click->Open-with both work ok.
