When browsing (with a windows client) in a Samba share with colon 
caracters (:) in filenames, for example 
"Institution.2003-12-03.09:34:28", de filenames are mangled.

I know filenames with colon caracters are not allowed in the Windows 
environment. But is there a way that the above mentioned example of 
filename "Institution.2003-12-03.09:34:28" will be better represent 
without mangling ?
