bug #11339: Save-game-deletion when saving a save-game that contains an Umlaut

As far as I know this bug may never occur when using Warzone in a "normal" way, as Umlaute are replaced by "_" (without quotes).

Short description

Saving a save-game can cause the save-game to vanish under certain circumstances.

Reproduction of the bug

  1. Create a save-game.
  2. Rename all the save-game-files manually to something like "testötest".
  3. Load the save-game.
  4. Should be successful (note: Warzone correctly displays the Umlaut in the save-game).
  5. Save the game again (and avoid changing the save-game-name!).
  6. Again navigate to the save-menu and see that the save-game has vanished (checking the save-game-folder confirms this).

What remains to say

Although normally this situation should not occur, I think that the save-game just shouldn't vanish at all no matter how problematic the file-name is. Even telling the user that the save-game-name is not usable by warzone (and telling him/her what may cause this problem and how to solve it) is thousand times more convenient than deleting a maybe precious save-game (although I think that currently nobody should have precious save-games at all).

I may document this with screenshots and/or add save-game-files, if necessary.
