Hi, Filip.  The file upload system was never intended as an interface
for admins...obviously, if you are an admin of a WikkaWiki install,
you probably have access to the install directory and can upload
needed files directly (but you'll have to turn off the
rewrite engine in the upload directory using .htaccess for this to
work).  The interface was intended for users of the system.  The
issues are known, and it is due for a rewrite.

Full UTF-8 support will be offered in 1.3.  You can download this from
the SVN repo and test it if you'd like (although I wouldn't use it for
a production system just yet).
