Description

After export to DXF Polish diacritic signs (special characters as ą, ó, ł, ż, ź, ń, ś) are all converted to "?" sign.
Attached are the screenshots from QGIS and AutoCAD. Probably this is a problem on the side of QGIS, because previous version 2.4.0 exported them correctly.

Yes, I tried with many different fonts, but it is not a problem of font - in "properties" dialog in AutoCAD there are "?" signs in the "contents" field (the result is the same with Draftsight CAD).
This means that no matter what font we use, we will always get the "?" sign.
The previous version exported it correctly (only as text entity, not mtext - which is quite useful).
Thanks for the feedback!
