Rsync and foreign letters in filenames.

I'm running cwrync :
rsync version 2.6.4 protocol version 29
on a Windows 2000 sp4 PC and I'm trying to rsync my favourites from my home PC to this Win2K machine. I run a batch file on this win2K machine.
99.99% of these .url files are transfered correctly.
But the odd one doesn't get transfered.
Ok, here is an example.
I've a URL in d:\favorites\Triops called "(SZARE) MYDLO I POWIDLO"
and Rsync reports this on trying to transfer it.
file has vanished: "Triops/(SZARE) MYDLO I POWIDO.url" (in favsAqua)
394 files to consider
IO error encountered -- skipping file deletion
The 'L' in the MYDLO is actually a U+0141 (L with stroke) character not a english L.
So cwrsync is translating this letter into another and so thinks the file is missing.
Is this a bug or a limitation in Rsync?
