Import data file with accented characters in path



When i use RStudio with R-3.4.3 i don't have problem to import data files with accented characters (in french) in the path.

When i upgrade to R-3.5.1 i have an error message : "Error in df_parse_sav_file" and i can't import the data.

Do you know how to solve this problem ?
