i would expect "*" (correctly escaped from the shell) to match _anything_,
yet some special chars (apparently we're talking chinese here -- the test case
is derived from live data) do not belong to that category.

To reproduce:
$ mkdir test
$ cd test/
$(echo -ne '\xbc\xc3.txt')
$ ls -1
$ find . -name \*

expected output:
<same as find without -name parameter>

I did a rough search for existing bugs, but didn't find anything.
