Subject: winbind code page


I have set up a SAMBA_2_2 server with winbind to communicate with a
german Windows NT server.
There seems to be a code page problem, though.

winbind does not import group names containigng german umlauts

The kernel module nls_iso8859-15 is loaded and files or directories
with names containing umlauts are displayed as expected, so I think
it must be a winbind problem.

Any ideas?
