Insert of comments with german characters (Umlaute) produce an 'Authentication failed'
|Icinga Version:||1.6.1||DB Type:||MySQL|
|Icinga Web Version:||1.6.1||DB Version:||5.1.61|
|IDO Version:||1.6.1||Browser Version:||any|
When we try to add comments to a service and the comment contains german special characters (Umlaute: for example ä or ü), it failed with an 'Authentication failed' popup window in icinga-web.
It doesn't matter if persistent or not.
In the debug file of the icinga-web there is:
[Fri Oct 7 15:56:13 2011] [info] SendCommandAction: Prepare to send command (command=ADD_SVC_COMMENT)
[Fri Oct 7 15:56:13 2011] [debug] SendCommandAction: Authentification failed! (hmac=8f409741af4fb7b274abe8f160ad50d9d7413380)

I believe the bug should be reopened because the patch only works for German umlauts: if I try to insert, for instance, the character "ğ" (Turkish one) into a comment I have the same behaviour reported before this patch and receive the same error ("Authentication Failed").
Tested on icinga-web v1.6.2 AND v1.8.1.
Please provide a simple patch also for v1.6.2, I can't upgrade at the moment ;)
Please contact me if I can provide any help,
