Next trouble with the WFS driver. How am I supposed to find a place named
'Hämeenkylä'?  The following request leads to an error telling me that there are
forbidden characters.

ogr2ogr -f "ESRI Shapefile" -spat 377346 6673628 392155 6684806 test.shp
WFS:http://hip.latuviitta.org/cgi-bin/tinyows lv:pks_tilastoalue_piste -where

I have met this same error with other clients usign http GET. I suppose that 'ä'
characters should be given somehow escaped.
