"Find Duplicate Files" (names only) with unexpected and surprising result

The last clear up action in my music collection got me a surprising result:
Æ == AE
ß == ss

Are they any more "similarities" hidden in the Duplicate Search? And how can we control this behaviour?

Strings are compared using CompareString function which returns both strings are equivalent. Maybe we should compare with another function.
