See attached screenshot. German umlauts are replaced with a '?' in the Synonyms suggestions, maybe this is the case for all non-ASCII chars.

Can't reproduce that using Mac OSX 10.8.2 with LibreOffice Version (Build ID: 527dba6f6e0cfbbc71bd6e7b88a52699bb48799)

I just built Master again (I192671cdec129b7c78638efb0c4339bfb265c47d) and I still have this bug. 

Can someone test this on Linux please?

Confirmed on on Bodhi Linux.

Changing version.
@reporter - version reflects oldest version that the bug is seen on, we use comments to say "we tested and confirmed on newer version X.X.X.X as well"

Marking as:
New (Confirmed)
Normal (can prevent high quality work for German users)
High (somewhat major feature - synonyms would affect quite a few users)

Thanks for reporting!

For me not reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.

Because this bug is quite old, does it still persist in Linux?

This looks fixed in 5.2.
