Description Tomasz Bartusiak 2004-05-29 20:03:19 UTC
I'm using samba UNIX charset UTF-8 and groupnames in Linux are kept in ISO-8859-2.
When calling script where as first parameter is groupname and second username 
(/etc/samba/smbtogrpadd.sh '%g' '%u') and groupname contains national
characters, username is passed with extra characters - e.g. should be "user_a"
and is "%uuser_a_t&#380;^\é&#729;&#380;&#258;&#367;E@^X<9E>^B". When groupname contains no national
characters everythink is fine. When groupname is a second parameter it's ok too.
I have noticed it from version 3.0.3, in 3.0.2a is correctly.

Is this still the same with 3.0.21a?
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2006-01-10 07:28:30 UTC
ab,  I'd mark it as fixed and let the reporter reopen if it 
is still reproducible in 3.0.21a
Comment 3 Alexander Bokovoy 2006-01-10 07:43:43 UTC
Marking this as fixed, please reopen again if 3.0.21a has the same problem.
