Ok. smbmount already does a 'c->force_dos_errors = True;' so it would just
be another flag.

I am pretty sure it ignored what the client said. But that could have had
something to do with cli->use_spnego or something else I didn't do. I'll
check again, next time I play "get samba-HEAD to behave" :)

smbd/process.c:construct_reply_common() sets FLAGS2_UNICODE_STRINGS
unconditionally. As well as FLAGS2_32_BIT_ERROR_CODES.

lib/charcnv.c:push_string() looks at smb_flg2 when deciding if it should 
use unicode or ascii.

To me that doesn't look like it tries to follow what was negotiated.
