PANIC: exiting on botched invariant
This happens because there is a file with high-bit characters in its
filename in the tree.
These filenames are compared as possibly-signed character arrays (e.g.
negative) in right_order_for_recursion, but have been sorted as though
they were unsigned elsewhere, leading to the botched invariant.
