It can be a single accented "á" (or another special character) which fails
to render properly.

Let's try it:
sm01@stt008:~$ ls -la Desktop/ | grep á
drwxr-xr-x 2 sm01 sm01 80 abr 16 19:18 áéñp
sm01@stt008:~$ gedit Desktop/á*/*.txt
sm01@stt008:~$ ps -AHf | grep á
sm01 9505 9463 0 22:02 pts/0 00:00:00 grep á
sm01@stt008:~$ ps -AHf | grep gedit
sm01 9484 9463 0 21:59 pts/0 00:00:00 grep gedit
sm01 9478 1 5 21:59 ? 00:00:01 gedit file:///home/sm01/Desktop/%C3%A1%C3%A9%C3%B1p/%C3%A1%C3%B1aU%C2%A8p.txt
Mmmm... It looks like a bunch of hexadecimal utf-8 gibberish :-)
By Googling around I've found this page which explains how to get an URL
decoder/encoder from bash:
(nope, I cant read German but code is self-explanatory :-P)
So, if we apply it to this, seems to do a reasonably good work:
sm01@stt008:~$ ps -AHf | grep gedit | tail -1 | echo -e $(sed 's/%/\\x/g')
sm01 9510 1 0 22:04 ? 00:00:02 gedit file:///home/sm01/Desktop/áéñp/áñaU¨p.txt
