In 6.1b1 the "now playing" playlist is saved as "Now playing - player name" in the database as well as file in the playlist directory. This playlist is shown in SlimSever in "browse playlists". In German "Now playing" is translated to "Es läuft gerade" comprising the German umlaut "ä". In browse playlists this character is shown in firefox as "�" and in Internet Explorer as an empty box. When I browse for playlists on my squeezbox2 this character is missing and the playlist is shown as "Es luft gerade". The stored playlist file on disk comprises also some garbeled characters instead of the "ä".

German umlauts in filename do not have this problem.

I cannot remember that this problem existed in 6.0.2.
Any ideas?

It was introduced with the playlist in db modification. I reported a while
back but did not open a bug. Could you please do this? I don't have the
time right now... Thanks!
