FlexBuilder locale editing conflics with Java

We are working on a international project and need some international characters inside of the locale .properties files. However, whenever we edit a properties file and save it, it gets converted to ISO-8851-1, allthough the workspace is set to UTF-8.

We are using the plugin version of FB as we also need to edit Java files. I found out, that in Window/Preferences/General/ContentType the encoding for properties files is set to ISO. After some research i found, that Java needs the .properties files to be in ISO. So i think there is a conflict here. JDT wants to ensure, that properties files are in ISO, while FB needs them in UTF-8.

Our current solution is to use Notepad to edit the locale files.
In the long run it might be better though, to change the ending of the locale files to something else to avoid this conflict.
