It's like this. Whenever you use special characters in a file name,
you're asking for trouble. The shell and the OS have negotiate how to
interpret it. It bigger than git, and not a bug. The issue is
between the file system, the kernel, and the shell.

Try it on different OS's on different machines (MacOS, Linux, Windows)
. If my theory is right, it should be inconsistent across machines,
but consistent within the same machine.
