794 - Search doesn't find umlauts in utf-8 files

Steps to reproduce:
- Place the attaced text file into any directory
- Search for "ümlaut" in that directory

The search should find the file, but it returns nothing.

Hello Larsen,

I don't know how you created this text-file.

If I save this file to my HD and do a search for containing text "ümlauf" it isn't found.
If I open the file in PSPad and only save it once more (also UTF-8), the file is found for containing text "ümlaut"

Saved it with UltraEdit.

When I open your file in Notepadd++ it shows the folowing:

ümlaut

FC search doesn't find ümlaut, because the 'ü' isn't there.

Check your fonts and settings for UltraEdit.

In checking on this I have to confirm that FC Search doesn't find umlauts (ÄÖÜ) in .txt files in cases where the file encoding is utf-8 without BOM.

.txt files with encoding utf-8 with BOM, FC search finds the files (i.e. text in files)
