  Invalid characters in file name

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Step 1 :

  I got file names with invalid encoding (mainly from an Ooooold Mac)
  In nautilus, it is displayed as 

  Ch 03 _  jud�o-christianisme.DOC (codage non valide)

  But an ls command displays :

  Ch 03 _  jud?o-christianisme.DOC 
  (Without the "codage non valide" mention)

  Step 2 :

  In Nautilus, I renamed the file just by correcting the invalid
  character :

  The result is :
  Ch 03 _  judéo-christianisme.DOC (codage non valide)

  And the ls command issues :
  Ch 03 _  judéo-christianisme.DOC (codage non valide)

  So I had originally an invalid file without any mention of it in
  command line, and I end with a correctly encoded filename with the
  mention "codage non valide"

  I wish a more consistent behaviour by not writing back the string " (codage non valide)" to the file name after correction,
  or by writing the string " (codage non valide)" to the file name on detection of the invalid coding.
