Your shell is creating invalid UTF-8 filenames; when you do something
% export LANG=foobar
% echo "foo" >somefilename-with-8bits-chars
the bytes you send to your shell over your terminal are still in the
previous locale. What is important here:
- encoding of the filenames on your system
- locale in which you run Gtk+ programs
Now Gtk+ should work in any combination of these or it's a bug; it's
common to use UTF-8 everywhere though, and should be the default on new
Some terminals or shells will default to the locale's encoding while
others might hardcode an encoding.
echo "some text with 8-bits chars" | iconv -f utf-8 -t utf-8
ls | iconv -f utf-8 -t utf-8
If this succeeds, then you're using UTF-8 or double-encoded UTF-8.

You want to install some icon theme; hicolor-icon-theme for instance,
or perhaps gnome-icon-theme.
