This is because you are using rename function with shell patterns
support (on by default). 

Try to turn it off and provide explicit source name and destination
name. This should work fine.

I am under impression that this problem has been fixed in the stable
branch, but I am not sure about it (you will have to screen ? character
with a backslash for it to be interpreted as a plain character).

Also, I am not quite sure whether this is going to be backported to the
stable branch. I will have to check it out.
