Error in file name


When I open files with GIMP I now and then get the error: Execution error for procedure 'gimp-image-set-filename': Invalid byte sequence in conversion input

However the file name is in correct UTF-8 (but some characters may be beyond ASCII), thus I assume it should be acceptable. I aknowledge the message and do not see any negative consequence, I can export to the original file without problems.

What is the hidden idea behind this message?
