From Gwern's commentary <http://bugs.darcs.net/msg17127>:

> filenames with Unicode seem to be mishandled somehow:

This seems to be a simple bug only if someone who has experience in
treating correctly utf-encoded strings looks at it. Ganesh? Ben?


These Filenames come from `listTouchedFiles`, then are passed to
`dumpFiles`, which outputs them to the fast-export stream, that's all.

I have a patch for this and a few other convert related issues. Stay tuned.
