The actual line in the history is
mp3info 好きになりたい.mp3
but in the history _file_, it's stored metafied, which is hard to
paste into an email. I'm not sure why pasting the original string
didn't occur to me. AFAIK, history files have always been metafied.
I'm not sure why the た is mangled in the error message is what I tried
to say originally. The final byte is 9f which I suppose is an esc with
the 8th bit set. Maybe something is trying to double unmetafy? Running
it through unmetafy() twice doesn't cause any problems though...
