I have a similiar problem here (using 1.9.18 too).
Files and directories containing these "umlauts" *can* be created by our
WIN95 clients ... but they *cannot* be accessed by the WIN95 clients!
Whereas our NT3.5 client can access these files!

I know, this info will not help you much further - but (at least to my
problem) the WIN95 PC´s seem to create this effect, because on NT all
seems to work ok.
Hope this will lead you to the solution.
