That's true, quoting the filename will let me remove it, but in this case I
don't want to remove the file, I want to rename it by removing the '[*]'
from the filename. And there are a lot of them in several directories.

Verifying that the rename files are unique in thier own folders is a
seperate problem that I can solve once I'm able to search and replace the
'[]' characters.
