Yeah, I thought that looked suspicious. Did you copy the maildir
installation over directly from a Windows machine? What program was
originally used to create that installation? I suppose this is an
argument for using some sort of export/import process, rather than
straight copying.

Dired has wdired-mode that allows you to edit file names in the dired
buffer as though they were plain text, and then "commit" all the renames
at once. If you have a small number of files to rename or they're all in
the same directory that would be most straightforward. If these files
are scattered through a very large number of directories you'll probably
want to do it in the shell, probably with find and exec and mv.
