Follow-up Comment #6, bug #16520 (project findutils):

I would guess that the byte sequence in the filename does not correspond with
a valid sequence of bytes in the character encoding systenm you have
configured for your environment (which I am guessing is UTF-8).

If you do "LC_ALL=C find ......." does it then work?   If so, the likely
reason is that fnmatch() is failing to decode the (invalid) byte sequence
according to the character encoding that has been specified.  But this is
just a guess.  Could you make this test and let us know the result?
