I was not sure if this would present problems for 
uploads, but given my recent experience with huge 
filenames full of commas, I thought it might be worthwhile raising the issue.

I tried uploading a file named 
"AdministratorPasswörter.pdf" from my Windows 
desktop machine to PmWiki 2.1.3 running on 
Apache/Windoze 2000 Server. It worked just fine 
and preserved the filename. The download link has the appropriate URL encoding.
