Is treated as the same username, which means that Håkan is now called Håkan1 after import. Can it be changed to be treated as two different usernames?

This is as expected and there isn't an option around it. It comes from MySQL's collations which are accent insensitive and thus the two names are considered identical within MySQL (and thus would violate the unique username restriction within that).
