The originating filename may be in UTF-16 or Windows 1252 or some
other, depending your your file system and OS settings. rdiff does not
convert the file names, it just stores them and gives them back the
way it got them.

If you access your rdiff repo from the Unix prompt then you should
expect to see this since your terminal does not know what charset the
filename is in, and even if it did know and it may not have the fonts
available to render it. When you restore the file back to it's origin
it will look correct.
