good idea, I tried following your sequence as well.
I created a directory using `mkdir`, then launched libre office and
tried to save a file in it. Interesting thing happens:, it actually
creates a directory named 'Proc?dures' instead of the original
'Procédures' directory, and saves it in there. I repeated the test
twice, because the first time around, I was puzzled enough that I
wasn't sure I actually saved the file.
Furthermore, I copied the file using console into the 'Procédures',
then opened it using libreoffice, and it opened the one in
'Proc?dures' - I know because I updated the file and saved it, and
the latter one was updated.
The only difference between us is that I'm using `libreoffice`
launcher command, and you seem to have `loffice`? The package is
also libreoffice-fresh, package version 6.2.5-1, and `libreoffice
--version` 18.104.22.168 2@(build: 2)
The --version in ubuntu, that works, is 22.214.171.124
P.S. I am unsure how well Unicode fares in mailing lists, so I
apologize if there are weird escape sequences in there. I just
composed it with vim.
