Bug Description

When you write a special character (for example, an accent) on any of the two above line edits (input boxes), the program gets responsive for some seconds and then displays a lot of strange (orient-language-like) characters. The "File Name" input works perfectly.

Problem found, it isn't because of Qt but the custom functions that handle the input: Gui.urlChange() and Gui.idChange().

Fixed. The problematic strings are now converted to ASCII (8-bit) before Python works with them. Some special characters work now there, others are converted to a interrogation mark "?", but since the fields are for URLs and not filenames nor nothing like this where they would be allowed it shouldn't be any problem.

Example of characters that...
 work: à é ç
 don't work: у л я р
