I haven't pinpointed this down yet, but I can reproduce on my snaps as 
well; first I tried "Документы" and failed to see it so went ahead and 
looked at my listing and noticed 'ú' is missing from "Música"!

I created a directory called "Документыddd" and I saw "ddd" in the 
listings. It just be a general issue with most snaps. Maybe Didier can 
look into improving the desktop parts if it is a matter of adding a 
missing library/data that solves this.
