Being able to see the files is not final proof, as it involves other
settings (your terminal and env variables).

You should run "mount" to understand what options are you using at the moment
and then try changing those.
This is a kind of problem quite hard to fix via mail.

Another approach you can try is this:
LC_ALL=C rsync ....

It could avoid errors, but it is not sure that the filenames you will end
with will be really correct.
