Unhappy Grip, if "Allow high bits in filenames" on then there is a problem with encoding.

I was ripping a CD with Grip where the song names have letters in it like , and so on so I choose to have the option "Allow high bits in filenames" on in "Config>Misc>".
Now everything worked except when it was going to encode it just completed in no time at all and when I checked the folder I could only see the wav files, no ogg files where created.

This happens only if I have "Allow high bits in filenames", I tried making Grip put the wav files into a directory that did not have "high bits" in the directory name, originally it went into the folder ~/media/music/ogg/<artist name>/<album name>/ which has "high bits" in the file name, so now I tried putting them into ~/media/music/ogg/ and the ogg files them selfs would just go into ~/media/music/ogg/<artist name>/<album name>/ , now this generated a different result, the speed of the encoding went berserk (uber high) but still it completed the first track but it worked on encoding the second track forever, never finished.

What could be the problem? Why doesn't the encoder work when this specific option is on?

My grip encoder configuration:
Encoder: oggenc
Encoder executable: /usr/bin/oggenc
Encoder command-line: -o %m -a %a -l %d -t %n -d %y -G %g -b %b %w
Encode file extension: ogg
Encode file format: ~/media/music/ogg/%A/%d/%n.%x
