That happens when you use the stable, released version of the GNU
fileutils together with Glibc 2.2 (in your case of RedHat 7 it is
actually not yet Glibc 2.2 but a prerelease snapshot thereof, but I
think that doesn't matter here).

This problem will be fixed if you upgrade to the alpha test version
of the GNU fileutils:

The new fileutils are supposed to work with multibyte locales.

From my own experience I can say that they fix at least the problem
you described above.
