Inconsistent web create and the message

How to reproduce:
  • SiteCharset: UTF-8
  • go to ManagingWebs
  • Create Web Űber (e.g. start with an accented character)
  • The confirmation wil say: The web is created
  • But it isn't created the links points into the System web

The issue is that validateWebName is not accepting utf8 characters. It returns undef for an invalid webname, and then with ASSERT enabled, i get a crash:

Use of uninitialized value $newWeb in pattern match (m//) at /var/www/foswiki/distro/core/lib/Foswiki/UI/ line 157.

The web name regular expressions don't support utf8 characters.

Tested again in 1.2-trunk. It doesn't allows create web such "Über", so it is consistent.
