Affected:  4.6.0 in xenial, artful, bionic
bionic version is 4.6.0+git+20170828

Simple test case:
touch $(echo -e ERR'\0303'OR )
find . -name "*ERR*"

Result is that only the file NON_ERROR is shown and the file with the
non-printable character ERR?OR is missing.

`find .` (without -name) show both files.
