While asking for the confirmation of the new name, did it show the use
character set like:

  Sie benutzen den Zeichensatz `iso-8859-1'
  Sie haben diese User-ID gewählt:
      "foo ü"
Under your locale you should have seen 'utf-8'.  As a workaround you may
use --charset=utf8 to override the default taken from the locale.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
