The first message makes sense, but unfortunately if we cannot reproduce it, we cannot help. The issue appears to be that your OS is garbling file names.

Is this is a translation back from German? The original would appear to be

Could you try a recent R-patched build? There is a possibility that one of two fixes might have fixed this too.
