Update of bug #22519 (project freeciv):

                 Summary: Save game function unable to cope with special
characters (e.g. umlauts) => Save game command crashes with invalid filenames


Follow-up Comment #5:

> etc.)

This looks like a server crash.

> A "?" or "/" in a savegame name causes the game to quit

After fast checking, when issuing the /save command, no check is done on the
filename. It seems that the characters <>:"/\|?* are reserved on windows, this
may explain why the server crashes. See

> Umlauts like "äöüÄÖÜ" do NOT cause a crash or quit but rather
> cause a box like "[X]" in the savegame name

That's sound another kind of missed charset conversion.

> Special characters "!", "#" and "&" work just fine.

These character are not listed above.
