The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1399
"short utf8 char" errors logged when samba lib/iconv.c is used
Last modified: 2006-01-25 10:45:41 UTC
When Samba is configured to use its own internal iconv functions
(e.g. when configure is run on Solaris, without GNU iconv installed),
the var/log.smbd file contains error messages like:
[2004/05/28 13:20:19, 0] lib/iconv.c:(506)
short utf8 char
when a filename with extended character is processed.
This is caused by "next_mb_char_size" in "lib/charcnv.c", because its
flag "conv_silent" does not apply to lib/iconv.c.
I'm getting streams of these from time to time on my Fedora Cora 2 server,
running Samba 3.0.3. I have "unix charset = UTF8", "display charset = UTF8".
Is there a debug setting that will display the name/location of the file(s)
with the faulty character set?
