[Samba] scandinavian letters or charset problem?

This teamware mailclient (teamware.com) that we use at the office has
problems adding files as attachments from our Samba 3.0.2a share. The
attachment file browser sees the files but fails to add them as
attachments (with an error message: "valid.stf - file not found"
regardless of the file name in question). I tracked this thing down to
scandinavian letters (if your mail client supports it you should see
these åäöÅÄÖ) in directory names.
g:\some-directory\some-file.png Works OK
g:\scandiåöä\some-file.png Doesn't work.
Anywhere else in Windows XP samba directories work just fine with
scandinavian letters. This is the only program that behaves like this
and I haven't received any help from vendor or manufacturer and they are
as amazed as I am.
Server is Samba 3.0.2a with winbind and the charsets are:
dos charset = CP850
unix charset = UTF-8
Clients are Windows XP/2k/NT and Teamware Office 5.3/6.0.
If you have experienced anything similar to this or could suggest a
solution, please do so!
