Been there, doesn't work. Put special characters in a filename on the server
and try to open/move/copy/whatever that file and linux will tell you that the
fil eisn't there at all tho you see it with your very eyes.

Been fighting with non-ascii chars for 14 months now (!) and thought more than
one about migrating the server back to windows.
