Summary0007640: Handling of non-ascii characters when writing cue/toc files
DescriptionIf a cd track marker name contains certain characters (in my case š) results in Ardour not writing any cue file. toc file works fine, š is replaced by underscore.

The log shows an error: "[ERROR]: an error occurred while writing a TOC/CUE file: Cannot convert Ešenvalds to Latin-1 text"

Possible expected behaviours in random order:

- Replace all characters which can not be represented using Latin-1 by underscore
- Replace them by some close character, e.g. š => s, ä => a etc.
- Warn the user
- Let the user somehow choose the CD text separately from the range name
Steps To Reproduce1. Create a CD marker named "š"
2. Create a slightly larger range containing the "š" range
3. Export the larger range, enable TOC and CUE
4. No CUE file is written. In the TOC file there is a "_" instead of a "š".
TagsNo tags attached.
