[Samba] Unicode, ASCII, and Samba3 ...

Problem summary :
Files created with samba2 are now unreadable with samba3. I tested all
possible settings in samba, rebuild it with libiconv, already posted here
without reply ... without success.

Today I analyzed the traffic between my station and the server, and I found an
interresting thing :

With both version, filenames are transmited in ascii
    code  130 gives "é"
    code  135 gives "ç"
    code  151 gives "ù"

But ...

In packets exchanged  by my Samba2 server and the stastion, the flag "unicode
strings" is set to Zero ( --> ASCII )

In packets exchanged  by my Samba3 server and the stastion, the flag "unicode
strings" is set to One ( --> UNICODE )

I think that the problem is here, but I can't find how to change it, forcing
my Samba to use ASCII there.

Any  Idea ??
