When I try to import an image into LibreOffice and the filename of that image contains non-latin characters like (I tested with Polish characters), I get an error window saying "Nonexistent object. Nonexistent file." and "qt.qpa.xcb: QXcbConnection: XCB error: 3 (BadWindow), sequence: 4541, resource id: 37810746, major code: 40 (TranslateCoords), minor code: 0" in console (in Impress) or "Image file cannot be opened" and "kf5.kio.widgets: No node found for item that was just removed: QUrl("file:///home/piotr/Dokumenty/Prezentacja MCHTR v2 %3F%3F.odp")" (in Writer).

I have installed all available language packages and all format locales are Polish, however all my display localles are English (makes it easier to solve all sorts of problems using a search engine). Is there a way to fix that behavior or is renaming the files my only option? Thanks for your time :)

Right, sorry for that... I edited the OP.

Given that you use last version, please file a bug report to bug tracker.
