Looks wierder than that. That file actually contains a question-mark char -
which is (supposedly) illegal under Windows. I had our Windows guy do a
hexdump under Win2000, and it's 3F - "?"... which is the single-char
wildcard char.

The other filenames also contain another wierd char - Hex value 95.
