were are trying to use the external Squid authenticator smb_auth (a wrapper
to smbclient) to authentciate proxy users off a Windows NT Domain. This
works well for ordinary users but fails for users that have an umlaut (e.g.
ü, 0xfc) in their username.
A network trace shows that the umlaut character in the session setup & X
request is changed to 0x00b3. Might that be an error in the conversion to
Unicode done in dos_PutUniCode?
