Invalid-encoding folder created every time I log-in in GNOME [closed]

since few days, something bizarre is happening: whenever I log-in in my GNOME desktop, a folder is created in my home directory, and its name appears to be random (invalid encoding, weird symbols, etc).

This happens when logging in gnome, does not happen if I log in using a terminal or ssh, so this should be outside of the bashrd/zshrc domain. I have no startup applications currently set and my .config/autostart is currently empty.

I don't know where else to look, can someone help me track down the cause? Thanks!
