Looking, it seems to be on doc-view's side -- if a buffer isn't
associated with a file, it uses the buffer name for the file's cache
directory. Here's a patch to the 26 and trunk branches of doc-view.el to
run the file names through `convert-standard-filename'. It fixes the
problem for me, at least.
