------- Additional Comments From wayned at samba.org  2004-06-29 10:22 -------
Rsync doesn't care about special characters other than '/' and a terminating
null (and, in some instances, a newline).  The character showing up as a
question mark is either a font problem or a character-set problem -- rsync just
uses the characters as it finds them.

For instance, copy the file back to XP (to a new location) and you should see
the original euro symbol.

See also the fname-convert patch in the patches directory for a patch that adds
a way to use iconv to perform character-set translations.
