Saved Variables

I am having an issue where addons that save variables per toon are not persisting those variables for toons with special characters in their name such as my DK here.

I can reproduce the issue on all toons with special characters (5 of them) and cannot on toons without (4 of those).

I have cleared the WTF folder and checked permissions multiple times. I am running the Mac client btw.

For addons that save variables at the account level there are no problems for toons with special characters which points to the issue being introduced on a toon level with 6.0.2.

Found this issue reported as a bug on the EU forums

Anyone able to shed any light on this please?

Hello guys and gals. I've posted an update on the issue and re-quoting it here.

Here to provide an update on the issue. We've investigated and found an issue affecting characters that have extended ASCII character(s) in their name. It could result in them being unable save settings correctly on Mac OS systems.

There's a fix in the works and we're working to get that implemented as quickly as possible.
