LyX not compiling any more for Beamer and modernCV classes (missing beginDocument, missing Glyphs)

Thank you, moving the folder with my .lyx file to a path without ASCII
characters only solved my issue, now I know I only need to wait until the
dev team release a new version with this solved. For now I'll just compile
my LyX files in reduced paths.

Again, thank you very much!
