Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

The title says it all.

I tried uploading different albums, one with no accented chars at all (" é è à ç" for example) and it worked. Tried uploading an album with an accented subject, doesn't work at all, and tried uploading an album with a "normal" subject, and some accented pictures. Those fail to upload : "Code 104, Message: incorrect signature".

Feel free to ask some more information I can provide.

This issue affects also umlauts (äöü), so I guess, it affects a wide range regarding special characters compared to simple latin characters used in the English language.

This is still an issue in Karmic.

Still an issue in Lucid...

This seems to affect any 'special' characters in an album title not non-ascii. I just had issues with an ampersand and single-quote.
