The program is doing things with the supplied filenames that assume
they contain only ordinary characters. Obviously the author, whoever
he might be, is not familiar with Unix.
The author was Tom Christiansen, and I believe he's quite familiar with

think that is the real problem. IMNSHO the best way to deal with this is to
remove it from core entirely.
