My local env is:
Comment 1 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2003-08-28 09:34:57 UTC
should be fixed in latest SAMBA_3_0 cvs tree 
(to be included in 3.0.0rc2).  Please retest
Comment 2 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2003-08-29 08:06:38 UTC
Marking it as fixed for RC2 (due to all the multibyte 
character set work).  Pleas reopen if that is not the case.
Comment 3 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2003-08-29 08:47:19 UTC
From Mauricio Zambrano:

  I tried samba 3.0 CVS and it isnt crashing now but 
  the file name shows me squares instead of chars (as 
  shown on scrennshot.jpg). I could be my smb.conf but I 
  tried with dos charset = 850, CP850, ISO8859-1 and
  it shows me the same thing. I also tried to iconv the file 
  but it doesnt worked.

config file for server
Comment 6 Jeremy Allison 2003-08-29 11:21:49 UTC
This is a user misconfiguration. The dos character set can never be ISO8859-1,
Windows simply doesn't support that.

The correct config for western europe is :

dos charset = 850
unix charset = ISO8859-1

I'm pretty sure this is fixed - if RC2 works correctly for Japan, it's working
for Europe :-).

I'm marking this fixed unless the bug can be reproduced with the above settings.

originally reported against one of the 3.0.0rc[1-4] releases.
Cleaning up non-production versions.
Comment 8 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-08-24 10:26:23 UTC
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
Comment 9 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2005-11-14 09:29:52 UTC
database cleanup
