Actually two issues are involved here, a corrupt pdf is generated for certain utf-8 title-parameters (where the filename is passed in), and, when 'prettyprint' is enabled, a texttopdf assertion fails('crash'), when different utf-8 ranges are used in the title.

Both are fixed in bazaar revision 7041.
