Sorry, I've overseen the parenthesis. You have to escape them aswell (like
any other non-ascii character)

There should be a way to do this, that's right. Did you have a look if there
is a feature request for that already?

As I mentioned before: you do not have to rename your original files, just
give them a fresh, short name made only of ascii characters when uploading
them (e.g. by writing "attachment:shortname"). As a workaround, of course.
