The name of a Dia Shape is what appears between the tags
they must be different
the filename is completely irrelavant.
the segfault is highly unlikely to be even remotely connected with this,
more likely is that your encoding problem is causing the segfault.
I might be able to attempt an answer to your other question later if i can
