2.0.3: character set problem

I've already posted about this to the samba list (19990201) then to samba-bugs
(19990301); no response, so I retry here.

I have
character set = iso8859-1
client codepage = 850

With samba 1.9.18p8:
smbstatus showed the filenames with localized characters ok (ie:
libertà.txt); smbclient was ok.

With samba 2.0.0 through 2.0.2:
if I connect with smbclient to a Samba share I see those characters
ok, but smbstatus omits the localized characters in locked files so that
"libertà.txt" is:
libertà.txt with 1.9.18p8
libert.txt with 2.0.0-2.0.2

With samba 2.0.3 things got worse:
smbstatus has exactly the same behavior as in 2.0.0/2.0.2.
smbclient: with "character set = iso8859-1" doesn't even show those files and
doesn't allow the win95 clients to see those files; without "character set =
iso8859-1" it shows the files with the same problem affecting smbstatus (the
win95 clients see those files ok though).

Should I change my settings??
