[Samba] Problems with Win-Username containing a "Umlaut"

I'm having a small network with 10 WinXP Pro computers and a SuSE 7.3 Linux Server.
I configured Samba to map the Windows Usernames of 9 computers correctly, but the one, with which Marc Dörner is working, is not mapped correctly. I found out, that this is caused by the "ö" (german Umlaut). If the Username is "Marc Doerner" it'll work, but i'd like to keep it to "Marc Dörner".
So: How can I set Umlaut-letters in the username map? 

The entry in the username map for Marc is:

marc = "Marc Dörner"

Can you help me??
