Summary0004723: Loading of files with special character in path fail silently

Slicer cannot load files that have special (non-ascii) characters in their path. Related issues has been reported many times, including:

This may be due to ITK and VTK IO classes not using API that supports special characters and/or Slicer does not pass special characters correctly to ITK/VTK (e.g., converts to Latin1).

If the issue is only in Slicer (this can be tested by testing reading using plain ITK/VTK classes) then Slicer should be fixed.

If ITK/VTK readers cannot handle special characters yet then at least Slicer should display (or log) meaningful error message.

TagsNo tags attached.

It seems that we can switch to UTF-8 filenames without too much difficulty.
