When importing a csv file for use with the "value map" type of widget, in the "Layer Properties" -> "Attributes" tab, the imported csv is not parsed as utf-8, causing the accents of my native language (portuguese) to appear all garbled up. I think the file is getting parsed as ASCII, which is kinda limited for us non english natives. This forces the user to manually edit the value map, defeating the whole process of loading data from an external csv file.
In attachment there is a sample csv with portuguese words.
