so if ISO8859-15 works okay for you, you probably also had set
"character set = iso8859-15" in Samba 2. With Samba 3 you really
should leave "unix charset" to the default, utf8, you just have to
convert the old filenames.

yes, it does, convmv can convert recursively and also skips files
which are already utf-8 encoded, so even if you have newly created
files in utf-8 and old filenames still encoded in iso8859-1 (or cp850
or whatever), turning everything into utf-8 is fairly easy.
