On my Gentoo Linux system, I'm using find version 4.3.0 and have problems,
finding certan strangely named files. For example, in a local directory on a
tmpfs, I've got:

address@hidden /dev/shm/02 $ ls -la
insgesamt 916
drwxr-xr-x 2 alexander users     80  4. May 08:03 .
drwxrwxrwt 3 root      root      80  4. May 07:59 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 alexander users 922538  6. Nov 16:00 [2005-04-14 20-17-09]
(0766) Sandra mit Cassandra auf Arm, Klinikum Barmen, Tag 23 -
-rw-r--r-- 1 alexander users    125  4. May 08:03 dateien.txt

Now I'm trying to find the jpg file with find:

address@hidden /dev/shm/02 $ find . -name "*jpg"
address@hidden /dev/shm/02 $

As you see, NOTHING is found. 

I suppose, this is because of the following characters:


Instead of "�:009f", it should be a simple "ß", so it should read

address@hidden /dev/shm/02 $ find . -fprint dateien.txt ; hexdump -C
dateien.txt | grep jpg
00000070  65 69 c3 3a 30 30 39 66  2e 6a 70 67 0a           |ei.:009f.jpg.|

As you can see here, the � is a 0x3c character.

Now, my question is - why is find not finding the file?

All of this is NOT happening on a non-Gentoo system with find 4.1.20.

I also reported this bug to Gentoo. See bug report at
