Non-Latin characters in status bar

I am posting this here since I cannot test on other platforms. While Chrome, Safari and Firefox are able to display non-Latin characters in the status bar, Vivaldi falls way short in this area. This is an issue at least for me. The issue is immediately visible on Wikipedia. While hovering over the leftmost column with articles in other languages, the URL of the article is not displayed like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/44fs0f99h1rmfjf/Screenshot 2016-02-28 14.21.51.jpg?dl=0 instead showing https://www.dropbox.com/s/tlx0l1wyg224xvw/Screenshot 2016-02-28 14.22.29.jpg?dl=0 The issue is more pronounced with Cyrillic and Asian letters.
Yes, that is a annoying unfixed issue.
I found it as Bug VB-3245 "In URL UTF8 characters only encoded"
I hope this will be fixed in upcoming beta.
As i tested the internal Vivaldi version it was already fixed.
In next Snapshot teh fix will be included.
