#894 closed defect (fixed)

Search for special (non-ascii) characters is strange

When I enter the following text:

muss muß müssen muessen

and then try to find "muß", I only get a match for "muss", but not for the exact string, "muß". "ß" is the German "s-zett", a very common character in German texts.

So there are two things that are broken/strange here:

  1. Not being able to find the string "muß" with the query "muß"
  2. There seems to be an automatic conversion/extension "ß" -> "ss", which may lead to false positives. Users should be able to disable that behavior.

Umlaut search seems to be broken, too.
"müssen" does not lead to a match, either.

I observed the same behavior for both the normal and the incremental search, no matter which options (case insensitive, regexp) were chosen.

The text (attached) is in UTF-8, both according to Padre and my file command. Same behaviour for ISO-8859-15 (western, also attached).
