Yes, I saw that as well. it doesn't do any harm, the files are still
backed up as you saw, but it might be difficult to identify them from the
Unfortunately I don't know of any official policy for the encoding of file
names on the remote server. The file names are in UTF-8, but the Windows
console is unable to display UTF-8 properly. The easiest hack would be to
translate the file names from UTF-8 into local encoding when listing them,
but this might be worse if the local encoding is unable to represent them
I would be very interested to hear the thoughts of other developers anmd
users on what should be done here.
