I've several reports about not working UTF-8 characters in file names.

That is

  pdflatex DieÜbung.tex

works but

  pdflatex -file-line-error -interaction=nonstopmode "\input DieÜbung.tex"

does not.  As the last line is common used by texi tools and also by
GNU Emacs AucTex this cause bug reports.  How to (re)enable high bit and
multi byte character support in the (pdf)(La)Tex engines?  As on older
TeXLive installation this works flawless.
