    I submitted a bug to the jfs people, because jfs incorrectly returns
    -EINVAL (this isn't even documented in man pages as a valid return
    from open()) from an open() on a filename with UTF-8 in it.


    This was triggered just by upgrading the console-utils package in
    debian (the problem existed all along, except that when I first made
    the filesystem a jfs one, I reinstalled from backups, rather than
    reinstalling debian from scratch)
