Run into a bug in wget last week.
Done some digging but can't solve it by my self.

If i tries to wget a file containing capital ÅÄÖ they gets coverted
wrongly, and åäö works fine.

I uses wget -m to backup one of my webb-sites to another machine. Have
worked like a cahrm for the last 4-5 years but a couple of week ago one
of teh files came down wrong. Thought it was a college that had uploaded
something wrong but after some digging it's wget that converts wrongly.

I have UTF-8 as charset on my machine.

If you want to test/see the problem

wget -m http://bmit.se/wget
Sorry, forget my answer.
Meanwhile I could make some tests in an utf-8 env, and yes, Wget 1.14 (Debian
package as well as current git) has the problem you described.

I am not shure if we can change it without breaking backward compatibility !?

Wasn't that problem always there?
Looks like bug 37564 [1], you can work around it with --restrict-file-names=nocontrol
You may find some more information in the list archives.
