I've started already yesterday evening with analysis. First of all, I
can reproduce the problem, that's why I haven't asked for further

The problem exists with the ssh method for Emacs 25.2, 26.1 and 27.0.70.

With sftp, the situation is different. The problem can be reproduced
with Emacs 25.2. With Emacs 26.1 and 27.0.50, the dired buffer shows a
question mark instead of the nonprintable character, but I could enter
the directory with this name, and I could open a file there. So it might
be a workaround to use Emacs 26.1 with sftp for the time being.

I will continue with the analysis.

Best regards, Michael.
