UTF-8 problem with NTFS support?



I've mounted an external USB hard drive on my fc-10 system. I have all
teh NTFS-3G packages installed.
 rpm -qa|grep -i NTFS
ntfs-3g-2009.2.1-2.fc10.x86_64
ntfs-3g-devel-2009.2.1-2.fc10.x86_64
ntfsprogs-2.0.0-9.fc10.x86_64
ntfsprogs-devel-2.0.0-9.fc10.x86_64
ntfsprogs-gnomevfs-2.0.0-9.fc10.x86_64

One directory seems to cause a problem:

ls /MyBook/paleo_enso/solar_forcing
ls: reading directory /MyBook/paleo_enso/solar_forcing: Invalid or
incomplete multibyte or wide character


Find apparently gives up entirely, returns nothing where I know there
is something:
 find /MyBook/paleo_enso/solar_forcing
/MyBook/paleo_enso/solar_forcing


Also, this appears in the log:
grep -i ntfs /var/log/messages
Mar 23 08:03:41 c ntfs-3g[3165]: Incomplete multi-sector transfer:
Input/output error
Mar 23 08:03:41 c ntfs-3g[3165]: Skipping unrepresentable filename
(inode 34473): Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character
Mar 23 08:03:43 c ntfs-3g[3165]: Incomplete multi-sector transfer:
Input/output error
Mar 23 08:03:43 c ntfs-3g[3165]: Skipping unrepresentable filename
(inode 34473): Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character

Googling all that leads me to a bug that was supposed to be fixed(? I
think? bug is 'version 9', mine is ntfs-3g-2009.2.1-2):
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=467629

http://www.ntfs-3g.org/support.html#utf8b says to make sure UTF-8 is
okay, I think it is:
[root c ~]# env|grep LANG
LANG=en_US.utf8

But there's obviously something here I don't understand. Can anyone
point me in the right direction?

The only workaround I can think of is somehow using the inode and
mv/renaming the bogus files. But I don't know how to use mv with only
an inode number (man page a bit terse).


thanks,
Dave
