"Find missing tracks" on files with accents can cause files to be dropped from library altogether

Lexicon version: 1.1.25
Operating system): Windows & Mac

Bug description:
I’m afraid I’m back with another esoterical one. This bug causes files to be dropped from the library after syncing the library between two computers (possibly only mac and windows). I do believe that there is one intermediate bug here, as this happened to files affected by this problem:

So the starting situation is that I have missing files due to a Unicode problem (side observation: All files seem to have been added on the mac, files added on windows do not have the problem). If now, on windows, I use “relocate files”, then an error message pops up letting me know that the files is already in the system, and whether I want to keep target file or the source file. Independently of what I choose, the file is then removed from the library and needs to be added again manually.

Step by step to reproduce:

  1. Add files with bad accents to lexicon on mac
  2. sync library to windows lexicon
  3. Mass-relocate files manually via utility menus
  4. Find missing files
  5. Relocate manually via right click
  6. click either option in resulting dialog
  7. File is now missing from library

** Side note **
Deleted, due to being half wrong, half irrelevant

Can you try this on 1.1.26? There was a minor accent change there that might also resolve this.
Do you only use Serato in this process?

I just retried on 1.1.26, files still do get deleted from library this way. Please strike the side note about serato, that was a brain fart in retrospect. This behaviour is strictly in LXC, without any other software, files that are missing this way do not get exported.

Thanks, I’ll look into it

Next beta (later this week or next week) will have a fix for the automatic relocator for this.
