Umlaut-Folder cannot be renamed or deleted (rsync)


Hey -
via rsync I copied files from my Macbook (HFS) to my Linux Box (EXT3)
Now I have trouble renaming / deleting a folder which contains an Umlaut, namely: Pädagogik
Code:
LinuSE:/home/linusneumann/Uni # rm -r Pädagogik
rm: Entfernen von „Pädagogik“ nicht möglich: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
means: File or folder not found
however:
Code:
LinuSE:/home/linusneumann/Uni # ls -l
insgesamt 108
...
drwxr-xr-x  2 root         root   4096 23. Mai 18:06 Pädagogik
...
LinuSE:/home/linusneumann/Uni #
Code:
LinuSE:/home/linusneumann/Uni # stat *
...
  File: „Pädagogik“
  Size: 4096            Blocks: 8          IO Block: 4096   Verzeichnis
Device: 303h/771d       Inode: 24182833    Links: 2
Access: (0755/drwxr-xr-x)  Uid: (    0/    root)   Gid: (    0/    root)
Access: 2007-06-19 17:13:07.000000000 +0200
Modify: 2007-05-23 18:06:36.000000000 +0200
Change: 2007-05-23 18:06:36.000000000 +0200
...
LinuSE:/home/linusneumann/Uni # stat Pädagogik
stat: Aufruf von stat für „Pädagogik“ nicht möglich: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
LinuSE:/home/linusneumann/Uni #
Oh and, just in case...:
Code:
LinuSE:/home/linusneumann/Uni # whoami
root
What's the way to still delete the folder? I'd like to just rename it without the umlaut - which would be fine, but now I'm having several copies of the folder on my drive - yes, I CAN copy it, that I would like to get rid of...

Thanks!
