It is interesting that all of these "corrupt" files originate from Japan.  The
filenames have likely passed through many different character encodings on
their journey from their source to your XFS filesystems.  And they probably
originated on a MS Windows machine.

How can you be so certain that there isn't a wonky bit somewhere that's
wreaking havoc with BabelMap?  Maybe that program has a bug, that after after
Y access cycles flips a bit, changes a character, or something along these
lines?  Did you update this program recently, or any other programs that might
affect character encoding/displaying, or anything remotely related to such?
Have you done any software updates recently, period?

Given the entirety of what we're looking at, and that you're apparently not
seeing this with files created in a native English language encoding, I'd say
Dave is probably on the right track here.
