    Description

      ? and * are reserved characters on windows and are not allowed in filenames.

      MSDN Doc:
      http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa365247(v=vs.85).aspx

      (I confirmed this on Windows 7 on an NTFS volume)

      clean_filename does not remove these characters from filenames which prevents these files from being downloaded/unzipped on windows.

      Changing this will need extensive testing.
