You need to be more specific to get correct answer.
In Samba 2.1prealpha (HEAD branch) code page support and translation 
is broken. I've got results, similar to yours. 
In 2.0.5a everything works, as advertised. No problems here.
smbfs is orphaned branch with zillion bugs, but recently it was 
reworked and hopefully, will be released soon again (2.0.6 + kernel
