Description TAKAHASHI Motonobu 2003-09-22 21:19:28 UTC
When we use non-ASCII characters in smb.conf, 
we cannot change 'unix charset' parameter via SWAT
because SWAT does not convert the encoding of non-ASCII
characters, which depends on 'unix charset' in smb.conf.

I think it's good that this issue is a limitation for 
Samba 3.0.0 and will be fixed later.

unix charset can be changed in (post)3.0.7 swat however there is no conversion
of smb.conf being done. I don't think this is feasible anyway, there would be
also conversion of filenames be needed in case unix cahrset is changed.

originally reported against one of the 3.0.0rc[1-4] releases.
Cleaning up non-production versions.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
