[Samba] file names transposed

I'm running samba 3.0.0-15 and have noticed that when users save some
files the filenames get transposed. This is usually when they use
special characters like the '£' (transposed to '#'). Looking at my
smb.conf I found the following settings:
# testparm -v | grep -e char -e code
dos charset = CP850
unix charset = UTF-8
display charset = LOCALE
unicode = Yes
mangling char = ~
After consulting the documentation, I'm still not sure what the problem
is. Samba 3 talks UTF on the wire and all the clients are Win XP (bar
one W95 machine from which no user writes to the samba server). From
what I read in the manual I gather that Win XP also talks UTF on the
wire. What setting does the actual character mapping for writing the
filenames on the samba server?
Any help would be appreciated.
