When I upload a file where the filename starts with swedish letters (ÅÄÖ or åäö) these characters are removed in Safari and Chrome. In Firefox it behaves the way I wish to; the characters are replaced (AAO or aao).
I'm not 100% sure this is because of plupload, but I start my search for an answer here.
