Hi,

I found that if I have a share with non-ASCII characters (for example - Russian), when I browsing the share list from the Windows 7, it will be showed in the wrong case.

For example:
If I define a share named "БДжй" (Russian characters, 'Б' and 'Д' are uppercase,  'ж' and 'й' are lowercase.)
It looks like this in the smb.conf:

[БДжй]
path = ....
...

But when I browse the share name from Windows 7, the name becomes "бджй" (which are all lowercase).

I also found some strange behaviors:
1. If I add some lowercase ASCII characters to the share name, the name will be showed in the right case. (For example, I change the name to become "БДжйdd", what I saw in the Windows is exactly "БДжйdd".)
2. But If I add some uppercase ASCII characters to the share name, even the ASCII characters will be transformed to wrong case. (For example, I change the name to become "БДжйDD", what I saw in the Windows is "бджйdd".)

Forget to say, the non-ASCII characters are UTF8 characters.
