I had the same problem with a file which has the spanish ~n in it.
Or at least I think it had because it didn't show up.
The only thing I could see was a file like "foo (spanish - espaol).mp3"
where the missing ~n in espa~nol suggested that somewhere something had
gone wrong. Trying to play the file using KDE resulted in "file not
found" errors. Trying to rename the file resulted in the same error. I
finally had to rename it using the shell before KDE wanted to accept it.
NB: I didn't see a ~n in the shell either so maybe some other
combination of characters confused KDE?

I'm using RH8 with KDE 3.1.1 but the error also showed up when I was
still using KDE 3.1
