I can.  Its a problem in vcl/source/gdi/pdfwriter_impl.cxx and

We now always write as US_ASCII to pdf now, which is one change from
3.2.1, so pretty much anything with DECODE_WITH_CHARSET in that file is
very dubious unfortunately.

The attached two alternative fixes would fix it for me. Either don't
decode URIs and leave %XX in them (This might adversely affect the
"Launch" target, whatever that exactly does in PDF), or assume that we
can write as UTF-8 always. Probably need to go read the pdf spec to see
what's the correct option here.
