I've changed my mind about that. I've always made it clear such tricks
is not supported. Same goes for the decodefoldernames configuration

With this in mind, it's not fair that I force you to do the job of
supporting this use case. Supporting UTF-8 correctly can be implemented
later if someone having this setup cares enough.

If it's ok for you, I'll tune the commit message to add explanations
that we know this breaks UTF-8 and why this was merged anyway.
