The native file contextual dialog does not show up for
certain file names that contain diacritics. Even worse,
it crashes the whole application by forcing a silent exit.

To be investigated and fixed ASAP!

    Can you, please, describe how to reproduce this bug? I can
    try it on French files.

    I encountered this problem with file names that contain the
    ASCII 223 (ß) character.

    There is a temporary fix for this bug in the systemshell.cpp
    native code. The contextual menu is not displayed for the
    situations where a crash would occur.

    A more detailed investigation needs to be carried out to see
    what the reason of this behavior is.
