Sansa Clip BUG files with German characters not loaded from playlists

It seems the Clip cannot load a music file from a playlist if it has a German character:

(2,b04)Walkure-zweiter aufzug - so ist es denn aus mit den ewigen göttern.mp3

The word “göttern” causes the file not to be in the playlist when I view it in the Clip although the Clip is able to play the file directly.

This is an unacceptable bug to have to REMOVE all such foreign characters!  My music files are loaded with such characters and they are important!

I tried changing to Deutsch language set that didn’t work.

The solution is to create the playlist with AutoM3U and use M3U8 format.
