I'm using
➙ Lilypond-book (v.2.14.2) with TeXShop (v2.43) on Mac OS X (v10.7.3). 

with Nicola Vitacolonna's engine for TexShop

The test example (below) is taken from Nicola's website. However, I replaced 
the the included file with test.ly (standard test file from lilypond).

The test case works flawless
ok 1. when the file is in the same directory, or 
ok 2. in a subdirectory when there is no special character in the entire path.

failed 3. The test case fails when there are special characters in the path. I 
have a parent directory named Flûte-à-bec that causes a "File not found error" 
(see screenshot of console below)

However, I don't now if this is an issue due to lilypond-book or due to the 
TexShop engine.

Thanks in advance for looking into this.

Have a great time,
