Non-ASCII characters in smbclient

I cannot get smbclient (or smbmount) to display iso8859-1
characters (umlauts) correctly...
I'm trying to access an NT 4.0 service from a Linux client
using smbclient 2.0.6
My settings in /etc/smb.conf are
client codepage = 850
character set = ISO8859-1
valid chars = ü:Ü ä:Ä ö:Ö ß
But all codepage characters get messed up, e.g.
ü (udiaeresis) -> ³ (threesuperior).
Looking at the code tables, it seems that for some reason the
cp850 -> iso8859-1 mapping gets applied *twice*, which causes the
error: The iso8859-1 hex code of udiaeresis is just the cp850
hex code of threesuperior.
Am I missing anything obvious (e.g. environment variables - but I
tried both LANG=C and LANG=de)? Or is this a bug?
Any hints greatly appreciated...
