file name encoding UNIX -> DOS does not work

  i've noticed that kanji.c function utf8_to_doscp doesn't work. it 
should use data from unicode_map, but it does nonsenses. It takes 
character, counts what type of diacritical symbol it has and uses 
this counted value as a reference to unicode_map. this seems to be 
ok, but it is not because it doesn't account the charater. u with 
acute is the same as e with acute for this mapping, for example! 
(always offset 0x301). of course, character_ is always a result and 
file is not displayed on pc.

what I did was I wrote something to CP852.TXT, recompiled it and 
renamed file on pcand reverse translation didn't work. what could be 
the problem?
