Follow-up Comment #1, bug #50606 (project findutils):

Most likely, that is not garbage, but a mismatch in your terminal and your
locale.  find is trying to use UTF-8 quote characters around the file name
that is missing, but your terminal doesn't understand how to display those
characters.  If 'LC_ALL=C find /nonexistent -print' doesn't have the same
problems, then the bug is that you are using a locale that pretends to have
UTF-8 support when your setup does not really honor that locale due to your
inferior terminal, and not a bug in find itself.
