Tree view and status bar show files with accented characters as new

Git support does not handle files with accented characters correctly, declaring them as new. See e.g spec/fixtures/subdir/áccéntéd.svg in atom/markdown-preview or lloeki/svg-preview plugins.

Steps to reproduce:

$ git clone  https://github.com/lloeki/svg-preview
$ cd svg-preview
$ atom .

Notice that there’s a file marked as new in the tree view — spec/fixtures/subdir/áccéntéd.svg.

However, I can’t reproduce this issue with the markdown-preview repository which has a file with the same name.
