It's probably a repoquery bug – our python tools are supposed to handle
UTF-8 but this has not been impressed strongly enough on their writers
at the right time. And current python is a mess on the unicode front, so
software writers have to care about it for stuff to work.

Because that's what in the package?

Our policy is UTF-8 filenames are valid package content
