I doubt this issue has any relation to UTF-8-MAC support. Colon character
belongs to first 127 characters of UTF-8 and does not require composition or
decomposition. I suspect Darwin mount_smbfs has additional handling of colon,
because it is not valid file name character in either Windows (volume letter
separator) or MacOS classic (path separator).
