This indicates that you have a non-ascii filename.
At the moment, the converter only uses --encoding to handle log messages
and author names. We can extend that to filesystem paths, but before I
go to far, I'd like you to check what filenames you might have that are
not ascii, and what possible encoding they would be in.
