Yes, that is correct.  Very recently, we have implemented special
characters in source file names, but with the additional restriction
that object file names must not contain them.  Use the CVS versions of
either branch (branch-1-5, branch-2-0, HEAD) for that.

You will have to specify an object name with `-o', but without special
characters.  See this thread[1] for more information, and on why this
might be sufficient for many uses.

If object names with special characters are desired, we might put them
on the TODO list.  They will be quite a bit of work to implement, though.
