Diacritic Searches in Version 1.5.1


When searching using a diactitic search term Dspace interprets the diacritic characters incorrectly, Therefore no hits are returned.

For example when you search on Sánchez an author that exists in our system Dspace translates this Author to Sánchez.

In version 1.4 searching does not change the diacritic form of the search term, returning the expected hits.

Has anyone encountered this bug and is there a fix or workaround we can apply to fix this issue.
