This program now fails:

$ touch `printf "a1\243a"`
$ ls -b a*
$ cat q.hs

import Data.List
import System.Directory

main :: IO ()
main = do xs <- getDirectoryContents "."
          let ys = filter ("a" `isPrefixOf`) xs
          print ys
          mapM_ removeFile ys

$ ghc --make q
$ ./q
q: a1�a: removeLink: does not exist (No such file or directory)
$ ls -b a*

the FFI spec though it would make it vastly more probable that 3rd
party libraries would work correctly with strings containing

Hmm, works for me too now. I must have not pulled everything properly. Sorry for the noise.
