I must have introduced a new bug (or uncovered an old one) with that
patch. If you diff and modify UTF-8 files that do not have a BOM (like
the Tortoise *.po language files), some of the special characters are
still destroyed. I guess it is because these files are interpreted as
ANSI and converted to UTF-16 which might fail because UTF8 files may
contain characters that can not be mapped to UTF16 and back :-(
I'll have a look at that later, but don't think I have time for this

I guess the only true way to solve these kind of problems is not to
convert user's data at all when diffing/merging/loading/saving, only try
to convert to correctly display the text.
