Rats, it's another unicode error. Am I right in guessing that this occurred
with a file or directory that had non-ascii characters in its name? What
is the return value of os.listdir() on the parent directory? (i.e. does
it return Latin-1 bytes, or UTF-8 bytes, or what?).

I've created #629 to track this one.
