I recently installed a new server running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 
with samba 3.0.23c. I coyied the userdata from the old server I nfs-mounted.

Now some directories and filenames show up broken or messed up (e.g. 
instead of, "Martin, Vogth" it is something like MbGErr) mounted on 
windows xp explorer and mac osx finder. local on the server the names 
are correct listed (ls).

I haven't changed the smb.conf and I can't see anything concerning the 
problem in the logfiles (loglevel = 5).

Any hints, idears or tips what to check are welcome?

Thanks and regards
