SlimServer on Windows seems sensitive to the codepage that is set in ControlPanel->RegionalAndLanguageOptions->Advanced->LanguageForNon-UnicodePrograms

If I set it to Hebrew (cp1255), the scanner ignores all files & folders with names that have accented characters e.g.
I assume that's because does not exist in the cp1255 codepage

If I set it to English (cp1252), the scanner ignores all files & folders with names that have Hebrew characters

It is my understanding that the bug stems from a limitation in ActiveState perl

I was wondering:

1. Are behavior & cause indeed as described above

2. Does this ActiveState bug fix provide a possible solution

3. Is there any workaround (other than renaming files)

1 = yes

2 = looks promising

3 = none to my knowledge

Does anyone have any information on what version of Perl Slim currently use, and if there is any intention to move to version 820, which appears to fix this bug and be currently available?
