Summary0000865: Document.xml in project file contains invalid string

Hello guys,

I think one of the latest commits may have broken something. I spent quite some time on this file, and upon opening again FreeCAD informs me of this error:
Fatal Error at file /home/normand/Bureau/NOCTAR-bracket_PartDesign_v2.FCStd, line 494, char 21
Invalid Document.xml: Expected whitespace

Then all PartDesign features seem dissociated from their sketches in the Project tree, and every sketch aprt from the first one is empty. They all had reference geometry.

I had created this file in FreeCAD 0.13-git201210312201~precise1, then updated to 0.13-git201211011953~precise1, closed FreeCAD and reopened it.

Actually, I did not create this file from scratch but edited the one in the bug report 0000864.

NOCTAR-bracket_PartDesign_v2.fcstd (Attachment missing)

I can confirm the problem in Document.xml. There is a string property "FaceName" which contains the French translation of "No face selected" namely "Aucune face slectionn?e" but the string is broken because it probably wasn't converted into UTF-8.

This FaceName property should not be a translated string at all but something like Face23. If it doesn't point to a face of a part object it should be empty.
