The Arabic name let's the test freeze forever; it is sklipped for OSX
already. From the other names, my first candidate for producing the
problem is the Chinese name. I've suppressed it as well earlier today,
let's see the feedback from Anders or somebody else.

But IIUC correctly, this touches only local file names and how they are
handled in Emacs. Tramp works on the remote side.

Anyway, this is exactly something I'd like to debug.

That would be great!
