Package: libwxbase2.8-0
Severity: normal

When selecting a folder with accents, wxDirPickerCtrl::GetPath returns a badly encoded string

Sample :
 - I select /home/user/Vidéos/
 - "GetPath" returns /home/user/Vidéos/

This issue has already been reported upstream here :

It seems to be fixed in last wxwidgets version (2.8.11).
