Actually, I used the shells auto-complete via tab and I did not type the
"'", the shell did.

The shell DID show the "'", it was not a non-graphic character, so I don't
know that the ls -b would have shown anything in my case, but I will keep it
in mind for next time. Nevertheless, I know "what" to look for next time
and should be able to deal with it or ignore it as time and circumstances

Perhaps I miss represented my situation when I stated "randomly chosen"
files. With files coming and going on systems, I perhaps wanted to believe
it was "random" but very much doubt it is. I would try the ls -b on your
files to see what it might reveal.
