It is quite easy to work around actually. Just make sure the playlists
are containing UTF8-encoded text (rather than e.g., Latin-1), and you'll
be fine.

So, I'm not sure I'd call it a bug really. Missing feature yes, as the
playlist loader could try using the configured codepage too, or do some
sort of auto-detection.
