Punctuation can break photo uploads

I'm doing a lot of photo uploads, and I came across a file I named 'Taking a picture of me?.JPG' - I'm using Mac OS X, so a filename containing a question mark is legal. I don't have Windows running right now, but I'm pretty sure it's disallowed there.

Anyway, I tried uploading this picture, and although the image uploader accepted it, and the progress bar completed, it never built a thumbnail for the picture (see attachment 1). The image is absent when viewing the gallery on a WordPress page, but when browsing the media library, it seems to know the item exists (see attachment 2). I blurred out my path information, because that's apparently a good idea.

Renaming the file to 'Taking a picture of me.JPG' allowed it to upload without any issues.

I'm using Safari 3.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.5.2. Am hosted with Dreamhost. Let me know if I can supply any more details. :)

confirmed in trunk. it's probably due to swfuploader. placing the following in async-upload.php reveals some information:

header('Content-Type: text/plain; charset=' . get_option('blog_charset'));
array(1) {
  array(5) {
    string(4) "test" // should be test?.jpg
    string(24) "application/octet-stream"
    string(26) "/private/var/tmp/phpxbU53I"

Punting due to lack of time and traction.
