Fix the root of the problem (#2), don't just attempt to avoid it. If
it's truly a bad filename tripping up on Windows, then you aren't
going to get around it by checking out elsewhere and copying to
Windows - you'll just delay the inevitable. The problem will come back
next time you do an update.

Fix those "weird characters" in the repository.
