The file name is lower case Greek "pi".

Code:
v:\> del /q %@char[960]
V:\π : Are you sure (Y/N)? N
Rex, aren't you going to fix this?

Not reproducible here.
Do you have a file with that name. Get one with "ECHO foo > %@CHAR[960]".

Charles Dye reproduced it right away and commented:

Code:
You get that odd prompt anytime you specify a filename consisting entirely of characters >= 256
I checked a little and that comment seems to be true.

/Q doesn't seem to have anything to do with it; you get the same prompt without it. DEL is acting as if /P had been specified, though it wasn't.
Quite right!

Code:
v:\> dir /k /m [EMAIL]%@char[/EMAIL][960]
 3/19/2012  23:06               5  π
v:\> del [EMAIL]%@char[/EMAIL][960]
V:\π : Are you sure (Y/N)? N

That's a new one! I didn't put those EMAIL tags there. In fact I typed the CODE tags manually.
