Problem with filename containing '?'


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
