Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

djview 4.9 falls when trying to open path(filename or any folder in the path) that contains cyrillic symbols from finder. for example, it will fail if I'll try to open /Users/myUser/мойфайл.djvu from finder it will fall. But if i start djview from console, for example

$ open /Applications/MacPorts/djview.app/

and then try to open any cyrillic path or file it works as expected.

In what way does it fail? Error message? Or just nothing happens? Are there any lines logged to the console at the time the problem occurs?

The program just terminates. No error messages at all. It fails when you start it from finder and in this case there is no console output(I don't know how to see it). If you start it from console, everything works good.

As I can reproduce the issue, I assume you opened the file by double-clicking on it. In this case, you should have a log in the Mac Console (Applications->Utilities) that says that djview cannot open the file. When opening from the file menu of the program, a pop-up states exactly the same without djview crashing.

It seems that djview cannot handle UTF-8 characters when opened from the Finder. I do not have a solution now, but will take a look at it.
