At least tooltips are able to display 8 bit characters as "für" shows.
I do not know what message encoding it assumes. If it's indeed latin1 it
whould be bad, since not every text could be displayed this way.
My system encoding is UTF-8, don't know where the wrong assumption of
latin1 (or pure ASCII?) comes from.

You misunderstood me. The old annotate method fails on some files, the
new one (quick view) works (as far as I tested) on all files!

You are not a developer? OK, nevertheless I hope that someone confirms
my error or asks for other information so that either a bug report can be
opened or even better the error is simply fixed.

I try to avoid filling new bugs on the fly because my knowledge of Java
and eclipse is very very limited. Give me a proper C++ program and I can
do much more ...
(PS: Filling bugs for eclipse whould be a never ending story, each day I
recognize at least 10 problems, ranging from trivial stuff such as
"activated entry in a combo box is invisible because of wrong color
settings" to hard crashs (didn't happened the last day, but I still
expect one :-) I try to report most of it but it's real hard work and I
still need to be productive ...)
