filename quick search - partially ignoring accent in filename

Fully UTF-8 environment. Suppose you have a file named "foobár" and you do a quick search for filenames (Ctrl+S).

You can either type "foobár" with the accent and it's fine. Or you can type "fooba" without accent. Surprisingly the last "a" still matches, but then there's no way to continue, you cannot follow with "r".

Either the unaccented "a" shouldn't match. Or, it's a very nice feature to match ignoring accents but then I should be able to continue with the "r", and presumably it should work the other way around too - searching for "á" should match "a".

I'm on Linux, using NFC everywhere, so it's not that "á" is an "a" followed by a combining accent. Unless mc internally uses that representation.

Version: 4.7.0-pre2. As far as I remember, this bug was not present in 4.6.x+utf8 patches.
