Pictures with non-ascii character in filename (ex : voilà.jpg) aren't displayed in notes

Steps to reproduce

  • Open the sandbox vault
  • Paste a picture in a note (tested with jpg and png)
  • either:
    • rename the picture to include a non-ascii character (ex : voilà.jpg)
    • OR move the picture to a directory containing a non-ascii character
  • Now in the note, there’s a “broken image” icon instead of the picture.
