Support for national letters in filenames in ftp operations

When using COPY to copy files to a ftp server, national characters used in european languages seems to be stripped from the file name; I guess this is not as intended. (TCC 12.01.44) Is there a workaround, or will there be a fix soon?

See attached example with a file with the name:
"Test æøåüäéÆØÅÜÄÉ.txt"

When drag-n-drop is used in Windows (2008 and 7) to the same ftp server, there is not this problem, the file keeps its original name.

The banner of the ftp server where this is seen is:
"220 Serv-U FTP Server v7.4 ready..."

Windows 2008 - national characters drag-n-drop is ok.jpg

Not a bug -- the standard FTP protocol only supports 7-bit ASCII characters.
There is a (not widely adopted) extension for UTF-8 support, but it's not
supported by our FTP library (or most servers).
