This may be related to two problems I had with
~org-icalendar-combine-agenda-files~. When I invoked that command,
Emacs created some duplicates of buffers for Org files with names
containing non-ASCII Latin-1 characters. In the names of the
duplicates, each non-ASCII Latin-1 character was replaced by two octal
escape sequences (probably the character code in UTF-8).
The second problem was Emacs interrupting the export to ask me which
character encoding to use for certain "problematic characters".
Strangely, the "problematic characters" were octal escape sequences
which I verified to be correct UTF-8 codes of non-ASCII Latin-1
characters. Emacs was apparently trying to "reencode" "text" that was
actually UTF-8 code. Each time I invoked
~org-icalendar-combine-agenda-files~ and Emacs asked that, I chose raw
text encoding so the UTF-8 codes would be left as is.
I finally decided to investigate and traced both problems to some id
links pointing to headlines in files with names containing non-ASCII
Latin-1 characters. I worked around by setting Org Mode not to export
