Interesting... I sort of went nuts because my "music" dir
is also full of files with funny char. I even have some Greek
Since you have renamed all the funny char file names
you are in better shape than most. This is an important

What tool did you use to rename them.
How did you verify that they were correct?
Because of this meta character thing in file names I use
the "-print0" option in find and "xargs -0" lots. Lots!
It is slower but solves many garbage file name problems...
