Good suggestion.

I learned a new thing today.  I somehow thought that precompose
trick was only about argv[] when a program starts up and did not
apply to paths readdir(3) finds through dir.c, e.g.

    $ git add .

But apparently there is replacement readdir() used in compat/ for
MacOSX so the paths from the system are also covered by the
configuration.
