[Dirvish] Trouble creating directory names with special characters (rsync error)

System that hosts the files I want to back up: Fedora Core release 3
(Heidelberg)
System that stores the backup files and from which I run dirvish: Mac OS X
Server 10.4 (Tiger)
Dirvish Version: 1.2
rsync version: 2.6.3  protocol version 28

When running:

# /sbin/dirvish --init --vault foo

I get the next error:

dirvish foo:default error (23) -- partial transfer
dirvish error: branch /backup/foo:default image 20070216-1050 failed

In the rsync_error file there are the next kind of errors (visualized with
an editor using UTF-8 charset):

*** Execution cycle 0 ***

rsync: recv_generator: mkdir "/backup/foo/20070216-1050/tree/Im?genes Trip
Aplica JPG" failed: Invalid argument (22)
rsync: stat "/backup/foo/20070216-1050/tree/Im?genes Trip Aplica JPG"
failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync: mkstemp "/backup/foo/20070216-1050/tree/Im?genes Trip Aplica
JPG/.Aplica1.jpg.0RqHLE" failed: No such file or directory (2)



The same than before but visualized with an editor using latin1 charset:

*** Execution cycle 0 ***

rsync: recv_generator: mkdir "/backup/foo/20070216-1050/tree/Imágenes Trip
Aplica JPG" failed: Invalid argument (22)
rsync: stat "/backup/foo/20070216-1050/tree/Imágenes Trip Aplica JPG"
failed: No such file or directory (2)
rsync: mkstemp "/backup/foo/20070216-1050/tree/Imágenes Trip Aplica
JPG/.Aplica1.jpg.0RqHLE" failed: No such file or directory (2)


All errors raise when trying to make directories with special characters
(like Á,É,Í,Ó,Ú,á,é,í,ó,ú,ñ). The rsync_error file has been written with the
right directory name that raised the error and I can create directories with
those names from Terminal in my Mac OS X 10.4 system with, for example,
mkdir. That makes me think that it could be any kind of problem with rsync
managing directory names containing the UTF-8 illegal character.

Any help would be appreciated.
