there are problems syncing files with special charcters in the filename.
The special characters in the filename are displayed as a question mark.
During synchronization, the rsync tells the file is vanished.
Here is the standard output with level 1 verbosity. Higher verbosity
levels dont give more informations about the problem. The stat command
with this file succeed.

file has vanished: "/backupmnt/neef/backup2/Sch?newolf.JPG"

sent 60557 bytes  received 64 bytes  121242.00 bytes/sec
total size is 188702060  speedup is 3112.82
rsync warning: some files vanished before they could be transferred
(code 24) at main.c(977) [sender=2.6.9]

Is rsync able to handle files with special characters in filename?

Help would be appreciated,

thanks in advance, Benjamin Neef.
