Execuse me, but I report one more bug and patch.
I forgot add one.


Samba handles Japanese charset correctly 
in coding sysytem= HEX or CAP by this patch added.

In coding system = JIS or EUC, these code which this patch
fixes, does not handle correctly. It is because JIS and EUC 
standards is not define these code area. Then it is not bug,
but specification.
