Bug Description

INKSCAPE 0.92.3

* PROBLEM *
Can't open EPS-files with german Umlauts like ä,ö,ü, Ä,Ö,Ü in the filename or path.
PNG-files open without any problem.

* REPRODUCE *
Rename an EPS-File to "Ümläut.eps"
(Postscript converts the filename to "\232ml\204ut.eps")

* ERROR MESSAGE *
ps2pdf executed but logged the following error:

this appears to be a Ghostscript error. I get exactly the same error message if I execute this DOS command without using Inkscape:

C:\Windows\Temp>ps2pdf Ümläut.eps test.pdf
