That's expected (at present). You can use `\detokenize` or similar
around a non-ascii filename.
The 2018 latex release essentially preloaded `inputenc` and once that
is loaded (essentially all latex documents in recent years)
the non ascii characters are made active with font-encoding specific
typesetting definitions so don't work in filenames (some work
essentially accidentally if the font and filename encodings match)
