[Samba] Difference in terms of charset between smbmount and

I have a Windows server, that I access using smbclient or smbmount.
After having the typical problem with non-ascii characters fixed in
smbclient, I was expecting to have it solved with smbmount as well.
However, that is not the case.
More precisely: I have a file on my Linux machine with german umlauts in
the name (ISO-8859-1 characters). testparms shows, that my smb.conf
contains the following:
dos charset = 850
unix charset = ISO-8859-1
A "put" in smbclient transfers the file as expected, and I can see the
right file name on Windows.
When mounting the smb share, I use the following options:
However, using "cp" to copy the file exposes the wrong file name on
Windows (cryptic single byte characters, rather than the german umlauts,
to be distinguished from UTF-8 multibyte characters).
Any ideas, what is wrong?
