At my job, we mix french and english, same in wiki pages,

somebody create a bunch of RequêtesNNNN pages (french for RequestNNNN),

they look good from the shell :

-rw-r--r--   1 twiki    twiki       1999 Jan 18 08:43 Requêtes1002.txt 
-r--r--r--   1 twiki    twiki       6232 Jan 18 08:43 Requêtes1002.txt,v 
-rw-r--r--   1 twiki    twiki       2590 Jan 18 08:45 Requêtes1003.txt 
-r--r--r--   1 twiki    twiki       6033 Jan 18 08:45 Requêtes1003.txt,v 
-rw-r--r--   1 twiki    twiki       2872 Jan 18 08:46 Requêtes1004.txt 
-r--r--r--   1 twiki    twiki       6422 Jan 18 08:46 Requêtes1004.txt,v

But MailNotify doesn't like them , I got :

Badly formatted subscription for AntTam:   Requêtes1015 Requêtes1016 Requêtes1027 Requêtes1043 Requêtes1063 Requêtes1064 Requêtes1065

The regex at line 326 in WebNotify.pm doesn't like the page name, it cut the name before the accent at 'Requ' and the regex at line 336 see the accent instead of a space and raises a formatted error.

Instead of using \w at line 326, we should use some like $TWiki::regex{wikiWordRegex} like before in the same script ?
