Broken: version: 2.82 (sub 6), branch: master, commit date: 2020-02-11 14:45, hash: rBc939b4df18e9

Short description of error
Mantaflow can not bake fluid simulations within directories named with special characters. When baking process starts, the cache_fluid folder is created normally, but no data is written in.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Create a new .blend file and save it in a directory named with non-ASCII characters (e.g. "D:/Simulação"). Make a Quick Liquid simulation then bake it.

I can confirm.
Setting high priority as it is a regression.

Ok interesting, can confirm this too. From the code it looks like this is a Windows only issue.

rB4453509d83dc only solved half of the problem. The zlib file IO functions in Manta itself need some adjustments too. Reopening until that's fixed.

And rBb8af5e10620f should fix the other half of the problem!
