I had 1100 files in a folder called /mp3files
One of this files had the character "ä" in the filename, as the singer was
from somewhere in europe.
Find would give me the following:
find /mp3files/*.mp3 |wc -l -> 1100 files
find /mp3files -iname *.mp3 |wc -l -> 1099 files
So I found out that the -iname switch was not seeing the file with the "ä"
character... After renaming "ä" to "a", "find -iname" would then give me 1100
I was using GNU find version 4.1.20
