documents and utf8 - opto - 09-07-2015

whereas web interface and UI work fine in utf8, we have problems with documents.

Their filenames come back from the system in utf8, which windows does not like.
So all filenames with special names look scrambled (= utf8 bytes are displayed as latin)..
Is there something one can do with it? (same in vt 530)
