Mac OS X uses UTF-8 as its encoding method and uses Unicode 3.0 with
NFD as its character set.

NFD is one of Normalization Form:

The implementation of "coding system = UTF8" on Samba 2.2.x is based
on Unicode 2.0 and does not know Normalization Form.

If you are interested in it, please try Samba 2.0.10 Japanese Edition
from http://ftp.samba.gr.jp/pub/samba-jp/samba-2.0.10-ja/, which has
Normalization Form feature.
