[Samba] NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND for filenames with 8bit characters

Since upgrading from 2.2.4 to 2.2.7, smbclient gives error message
"NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND opening remote file" for files with ascii
characters in the filename which have codes from 0x80 to 0xff. There is
an example below. Copying the file using a windows PC to a samba server
works ok, the problem comes using smbclient from Unix (Solaris 2.7).
Any reason, fix, workaround?
