Bug Description

When the Check Book function issues a warning like:

WARNING: Invalid id: stärt [OEBPS/metadata.opf]

caused by the ID containing an accented letter and thus the file metadata.opf contains an entry like:

<item href="Text/start.xhtml" id="stärt" media-type="application/xhtml+xml"/>

then using the Check Book repair options:

  - Replace this id with a randomly generated valid id
  - Try to correct all fixable errors automatically

will cause the complete removal of the xhtml file, referenced by the ID.
This problem can be reproduced.
