Maybe they've already fixed this bug in Rsync?

Unicode isn't the reserve of the Chinese language. So I'm more concerned that no one else in the *Western* world hasn't came across this bug!

I mean it doesn't appear to work with European accent characters does it?

Could there be hundreds of Rsync servers silently skipping those odd dozen or so files with the occasional foreign letter in them? ;-)

Or maybe Rsync isn't used as much as we believe?
