Wrong encoding in file names of downloaded files #137
NZBGet reads file names from articles. The names are part of yEnc-format. The format however lacks encoding information; it also doesn't support Unicode. In most cases however the file names are encoded in Latin1 or Windows-1252 and so should we treat them.
After the names are read from articles NZBGet uses them "as is", which is not correct. Internally all file names in program are represented in UTF8. The file names read from articles should be transcoded from Latin1/Windows-1252 to UTF8. This will ensure the files written to disk will have proper names.
