Actually, the question is if the VFS patch broke unicode support (I
don't think so)
Or if unicode support is generally broken within the VFS layer. The VFS
module itself imho 
couln't be the culprit, because the VFS module Ariel uses doesn't hook
opendir for example. 
(he actually refers to my samba-vscan stuff and the audit example

Just for clarification :-)

cheers, Rainer
