Sourcetree doesn't show internal diff if path has foreign accents

I just found out that if a path has foreign accents (ex: ãáé) the internal diff won't show any changes.

This is with a git repository, if I try it with an hg repository it works correctly.

Is there a solution for this? I really like the internal diff and wouldn't like to use an external.


NOTE: OSX 10.8.5, Sourcetree

This is probably a bug in git, not SourceTree:

Are you using embedded or system git? If embedded, I think SourceTree distributes git 1.8, which is prior to support for Unicode 6.3 or 7.0, as mentioned in that stack exchange thread.

Thanks for the reply. I am using the embedded git which is 2.2.1, and reading that SO topic, this version should support it now, but it doesn't. I tryed the system git (2.3.5), but it gave me all sorts of errors and was unuseable :(
