[Samba] [3.0.4] Problem with strange characters in file names

I'm using samba 3.0.4, with XP clients and server-side-profiles.
Sometimes, my users save bookmarks with strange characters in them.
These files are saved flawlessly on the server, but Windows is unable to
copy them back to the local profile, and so the user can not log in.

I'm using a iso8859-15 charset.

I hope this is not a common question, I looked in the archive but I had
been unable to find a similar one.

One example for a strange characters is in the title of the home page of
the US Department of State (http://www.state.gov/), in firebird, it is
shown as \2013, on the linux server, is is shown as `^S'.

Is there any way I could modify change these characters to spaces, or
any other solution?

LLAP, Martin
