I recently updated from git 126.96.36.199 to git 1.8.3, and now I experience problems with files that contain umlauts in their names. When I try to remove them, I get the error
fatal: pathspec 'Tiefkühl_Buttons_60px.gif' did not match any files

I also tried to call
git add -u . to add the file to the index and remove it later, but that simply doesn't add it
Is there any other option to remove a file from git?
