Perforce Integration / special characters in comments

We are using a non-unicode perforce repository and
many of our java comments are maintained in german (and may contain special characters like öäü etc)

This was never a problem with IntelliJ 5.x and 6.x

Since IntelliJ 7.0.x we have the following problem:

Whenever IntelliJ checks out a file (open for edit) all lines which contain non standard characters are marked as changed.
However, if we submit those files the normal p4 client does not detect any changes in those lines.

This makes it pretty hard to detect the "real" changes inside IntelliJ.

Do you have any workaround or bugfix for us?

Hello frank,

What encoding do you have specified in the IDE general settings as the default
encoding? Also, which exactly version of IntelliJ IDEA are you using? There
were some fixes in this area in 7.0.2

Hello Dmitry,

I have tried "System-Default", ISO-8859-1 and ISO-8859-15 (both with restarts of intellij)
I am currently using 7.03 EAP #7693

Greetings
Frank
