possible bug: non-ASCII characters not displayed properly in the RStudio release 2021.09.02

Hi, I have a problem with encoding non-ASCII characters since the Ghost Orchid release update. All files containing these characters are not displayed properly and I can`t read the files in RStudio. When I list the files in R it encodes them properly. I tried changing global settings to all types of encoding and set.locale to Swedish, but it still does not work. It works with the old RStudio versions so I think this might be a bug with the new version.

this is my session info and what it looks like when I list the files:
