Umlauts/accented characters in SAP BW 7.3 vs. BW 7.0

Dear experts,

we are experiencing different behaviour between BW 7.3 and BW 7.0. When testing BAPI_MDPROVIDER_GET_MEMBERS in SAP GUI (SE37) there is a MUN that has a German character in it (u umlaut) for BW 7.3.

Yet this is not the case for BW 7.0 - the same test leads to a technical id like [!+0000000007].

The master data is identical for both servers.

Is there a generic difference in BW 7.3 vs. BW 7.0 which we have to take into account or is there 'just' a difference in configuration which we haven't found so far (though we were definitely looking for)?

If there is a/are configuration difference(s) - which/where are they?

    is your 7.3 unicode (and your 7.0 not)?

    we've seen similar "unexpected" behaviour at a client... in that case it was due to the 7.3 being unicode (and the "old" system was not)
