Description Sergey Svishchev (dead mail address) 2004-01-16 02:52:51 UTC
System: Red Hat 9, kernel 2.4.20-24.9 (custom build with POSIX ACL support),
glibc 2.3.2-11.9.

Samba 3.0.1 (built from official source RPM, --with-acl-support added)


        dos charset = IBM866
        unix charset = KOI8-R

Windows 2000 or XP client:

Locale: Russian
Language settings: Cyrillic (default), Western Europe and United States
Input languages: English (United states) (default), Russian

Create a file named "foo №1".  The funny character is NUMERO SIGN, 0x2116 in
Unicode, 0xfc in IBM866 encoding, and not encoded at all in KOI8-R.

File gets created successfully, but its name changes to "foo\ ^V\!1" (as seen by
zsh.exe from Cygwin) -- that's raw unicode embedded into ASCII string!

Where do you create the file? On Unix or on Windows? 
Comment 2 Sergey Svishchev (dead mail address) 2004-06-10 11:16:35 UTC
On Windows.
Comment 3 Alexander E. Patrakov 2004-08-08 23:15:33 UTC
This is probably a duplicate of Bug 1578 and the patch from there should help.
Please test and report the results.
Comment 4 Sergey Svishchev (dead mail address) 2004-10-13 14:48:33 UTC
The problem is indeed fixed (tested on 3.0.7).

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