Problem with accented characters #1135

The problem is that if we add a new folder or file with an accented character, example: testé.jpg

The sync stops and the file stays "untracked" by Git and I have to manually add it and commit/push each time.

Steps to reproduce the problem.

  1. Install SparkleShare on OSX
  2. Add a new file named "testé.jpg"
  3. Get on Terminal and go on your git folder and check with "git status".

You will notice that the push aren't done anymore and the file is not added and commited to the repo.

can you post the log when this happens? you can get it through the about dialog.

Here is the debug_log.txt when this happens.

We have it in the git log.

pascal-mac:master-work pascal$ git log
commit 80fd924fafc5eb4f8de9966f3c4b785d2cd2356f
Author: Pascal Meunier <test@example.com>
Date:   Thu Jan 3 17:14:08 2013 -0500

    + ‘Temp/testé.png’


But still I have the untracked file, that remains in the git status.

pascal-mac:master-work pascal$ git status
# On branch master
# Your branch is ahead of 'origin/master' by 1 commit.
# Untracked files:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to include in what will be committed)
#   Temp/testé.png
nothing added to commit but untracked files present (use "git add" to track)

Thank you!

i get the strange git status message as well, but the changes do get pushed to the remote and the repo keeps working. the pastebin has expired. can you repost it here?

so the reason that git status shows untracked files could be because SparkleShare uses a newer bundled version of Git. i upgraded, and it doesn't show the untracked files anymore:

Hylkes-MacBook-Air:rebase-test hbons$ /usr/local/git/bin/git --version
git version
Hylkes-MacBook-Air:rebase-test hbons$ /usr/local/git/bin/git status
# On branch master
nothing to commit, working directory clean
