Hi Paul,

I compiled revision 5322 on Ubuntu 9.04 (I had to install
libboost1.35-dev instead of libboost1.37-dev to make it compile). Here
is the result of a quick test (using slash and a,o,u-umlauts):

1. create snapshot, name "test1 / abc äöü" -> "[ERROR] state could not
be saved to /local/giso/ardour-2.0-ongoing/test20ongoing/test1 / abc.tmp"

2. create snapshot, name "äöü" -> nothing happens

3. create snapshot, name "abc äöü" -> only the "abc" appears in snapshot
list, all the rest seems to be ignored.

4. Entering invalid JACK parameters which cause jackd to fail is
reported correctly, but the entered file name is cleared (would be nice
to keep the already entered name)

(4) is not related and not a major issue.

Maybe I missed something to make your changes work?
