[Samba] Problems with amanda backup using smbclient

Hi, together,

I've some problems backing up NT shares using smbclient/smbtar. When the
filename contains a german umlaut (i.e. ä, ö, ü, ß), an error occurs when
amanda receives the
files from the PC. Excerpt from mail report:

/-- devwage700 //devwagwoce7621/backup1$ lev 1 STRANGE
sendbackup: start [devwage7001://devwagwoce7621/backup1$ level 1]
sendbackup: info BACKUP=/usr/local/bin/smbclient
sendbackup: info RECOVER_CMD=/usr/local/bin/smbclient -f... -
sendbackup: info end
? INFO: Debug class all level = 2   (pid 19398 from pid 19398)

? ERRDOS - ERRbadfile listing \Schröder, Mark\*
| tar: dumped 308 files and directories
| Total bytes written: 293888
sendbackup: size 287
sendbackup: end

Any idea? I tried to play around with the configuration on either the 
amanda and the samba side, but without success. When I use smbclient
manually I can access and download the files without problems.

My configuration:
Amanda version 2.4.2p2 @ Solaris 8
Samba 2.2.2 @ Solaris 8
NT 4.0 SP6 shares

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
