Well, it turns out I did have a file with a "weird" character in its name. I
had a file named "ert^G^G". It seems there was a bug in the Perl I used to
detect "weird" characters. For future reference, something like this
ought to

find . |perl -ne 'chomp; print "$_\n" if m|[^-A-Za-z0-9_/\.~]|;' |od -a

Which would have told me:

. / e r t bel bel nl

Sorry about that,
