Dear Maintainer,

wxWidgets has a known bug which prevents wxExecute for correctly handling
arguments with non-ascii characters. The bug was discussed and reported in
Upstream fixed the issue in the development version (wxWidgets-3.1).

The bug affects all the programs relyig on wxExecute functionality, for example
