^@'s in dired buffers

I've been trying the unicode-2 branch for about a week, and about a
dozen times so far when browsing in dired, a filename will have
several ^@ control characters appended to it.

Pressing g (revert-buffer) fixes the problem -- the file name no
longer has ^@'s on the end.

If I mark the affected file (m, dired-mark) and try to delete it with
D (dired-do-delete), the file reappears when I press g
(revert-buffer).  Presumably this is because Emacs is running `rm
address@hidden@address@hidden@address@hidden@' instead of `rm file'.

I have not yet found a way to reproduce this bug reliably, sorry.

I have not noticed this issue using the default CVS branch of

I checked-out emacs at 2007-01-29T10:53:00+1100 with `make build' and
