Please describe the problem.

When I do git annex add on a directory with a filename that include a "?" I get an error: git-annex: unknown response from git cat-file ("HEAD:./Home/wc/Icon missing","HEAD:./Home/wc/Icon\r") CallStack (from HasCallStack): error, called at ./Git/CatFile.hs:86:48 in main:Git.CatFile

where the file here was called "Icon?"

What steps will reproduce the problem?

mkdir test

cd test

git init

git annex init "test"

cp ~/Desktop/Icon? .

ls

Icon?

git annex add .

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)
