looks like it is as bad as I was afraid of when I read the filename: 
the Ü umlaut is the culprit

Wasn't there something like "Unicode, it just works"? 8-)

This app runs fine: 
../PK-Beitragsuebersicht 2.0/PK-Beitragsuebersicht

These don't:
../PK-Beitragsübersicht 2.0/PK-Beitragsuebersicht
../PK-Beitragsuebersicht 2.0/PK-Beitragsübersicht

Is the OS X Umlaut bug back?
