We have a weird problem with our OS X Server. When we have accented letters in a folder name, like for instance "Référence", Finder sometimes becomes jumpy, jumping from the folder to the parent, making the content of the folder "blink". I'm not sure how exactly to describe it but it is really frustrating and makes work uneasy. For the moment, we changed every accented name to plain ASCII names, and the problem seems gone.

I am apparently not the only one having this problem, as described in this blog post:

I don't think there's much that can be done but Apple looking into it, but we never know?

Mac Mini Server, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
