fsck doesn't complain and what you see here are most likely some weird 
charset issues.

you're tools can't handle umlauts and thus fails to do anything with 
files containing umlauts. i'm not good [1] at charset issues either, but 
in debian the packages "locales" and "util-linux-locales" seems to be 
responsible for all that stuff.
