Cmis 1.1 password with special character

After switching from CMIS 1.0 to CMIS 1.1 I am no longer able to use special chacters in the password to log in (for example "andré" as password).
With CMIS 1.0 this was possible.
Does anyone knows if there is a possiblity to do this in CMIS 1.1? Do I have to encode my password somehow (I tried with "andré", "andr\\u00E9", …)?

Here my implementation to create the alfresco session

private Session createSession(String username, String password) {
    SessionFactory sessionFactory = SessionFactoryImpl.newInstance();

    Map<String, String> parameters = new HashMap<String, String>();
    parameters.put(SessionParameter.READ_TIMEOUT, String.valueOf(60000));

    //User credentials.
    parameters.put(SessionParameter.USER, username);
    parameters.put(SessionParameter.PASSWORD, password); //password is "andré"

    //CMIS 1.1 browser binding
    parameters.put(SessionParameter.BINDING_TYPE, BindingType.BROWSER.value());
    parameters.put(SessionParameter.BROWSER_URL, getAlfrescoServerUrl() + "/alfresco/api/-default-/public/cmis/versions/1.1/browser"); // URL to your CMIS server.

    parameters.put(SessionParameter.AUTH_HTTP_BASIC, "true");
    parameters.put(SessionParameter.COOKIES, "true");

    //Set the alfresco object factory
    try {
            Repository repository = sessionFactory.getRepositories(parameters).get(0);
            return repository.createSession();
    }catch (CmisUnauthorizedException e){
            log.log(Level.WARNING, "createSession(" + username + ").CmisUnauthorizedException.returning NULL-session");
    } catch (CmisPermissionDeniedException e) {
            log.log(Level.WARNING, "createSession(" + username + ").CmisPermissionDeniedException.returning NULL-session");
    return null;
