German Umlauts in BookOutputName

Hi all,


\version "2.19.83"

\header { title = "Wächter"}


  \bookOutputName "Wächter"
  \score {
    {c d e f} 


Whenever I run this code, the title itself is correctly displayed with the Umlaut, but the .pdf-File is always named “Wächter.pdf”. I’m on Windows 10.

The standard solution would be to change the encoding to UTF-8, but that is already the case, at least for the files where I can change it.

But I have the suspicion that Lilypond is still operating in ANSI, because the generated .log-file will always be encoded in ANSI.

This is probably a Windows-only problem, but what could I do to solve it?

(Of course I could just get rid of the Umlauts or rename the file in the explorer, but it would be nice to understand what is causing this)


Thanks in advance
