I can't create new folder in a czech Win95 explorer on a unix using samba 1.9.18p7. The problem is that Windows exporer uses for the creation new folder a name containing characters above 128.
The explorer creates new folder in a two phases: the first It creates directory named Nov<A0> slo<A7>zka and next it gives to user 
posibility to change this name. Crazy !!? The first phase is well interpreted but second phase failes and user loose a posibility to 
access this new directory Nov<A0> slo<A7>zka. If I interpreted well content of log file it tells me that folder Nov<A0> slo<A7>zka was created but It tryes rename directory Nov<B5> slo<A6>zka. 
May be I has wrong set smb.conf file. Can somebody help me with this.

My smb.conf file:
