in Linux the git-client accepts (add, commit, push) files with '?' (questionmark) in its name.
When cloning such a repository into Eclipse (eGit/jGit) the repository-clone is rejected with an 'Invalid Path'-message with the ?-filename.
Under Linux it is possible to create a clone (the same git-binary used to checkin the ?-file) without any message.
But the directory containing the ?-file is silently discarded whatever you checkout (master/HEAD, first or any other commit containing this file).
Git-version is 2.17.0
Linux - Cent/OS: 2.6.32-754.10.1.el6.x86_64 - GNU/Linux
More information needed ?
Greetings and a have nice weekend
