[PD] strange characters in error message when trying to save help patches as non-root

Hi list,

On debian testing with package puredata-core version 0.50.2-1 I am
trying to save any help file in /usr/lib/puredata/doc/5.reference/list-help.pd
as non-root user without having the proper permissions. What is funny is
that the subsequent and correct error message misspells the filename
giving me some funny characters in the filename:
	/usr/lib/puredata/doc/5.reference/list-h؀¹# : Permission denied
(the funy characters do spell differently in Pd's console than in this
email here though). This does not happen with other patches that root
created when a user that does not have write permissions tries to save.
There the filenames do spell correctly. Can anyone with the same O.S.
and packages confirm?

thanks and happy christmas to everyone on this list!
