hebrew characters

I'm trying to use rsync (version 2.6.9) to back up some files. However, a few 
of them contain Hebrew characters. While I can back them up, the filenames 
come through scrambled (I don't have Hebrew characters anymore). I've tried 
the -8 switch, but that didn't work. Any suggestions?


The files are created on Windows and saved on a samba share (v3.0.24). I can 
copy them around in Windows just fine. Konqueror, on the machine the files 
are physically on shows the file names properly. But when I copy them using 
rsync, the file names get scrambled (Hebrew characters only; English 
characters are fine).
Fail to learn history-repeat it.
Fail to learn rights-lose them.
Learn both-get screwed by previous two groups.
