Well, how can I answer you at all without investigating at least a bit;)

You know, I also don't know everything about Aida from the head. More
and more I rely on the comments I put in the code. And by investigating
from the scratch.

I approached to the investigation simply by trying to rename some view
to include umlauts, then rename the view method also, then I wanted to
follow the matching algorithm in WebApplication class>>viewMethofForView: .

But I think the problem starts because Aida don't utf8 encode view names
in Urls at all. This is probably the reason the view name is not correct
when come to the #viewMethodForView: .

That was just few hints, which could help...
