Hi all:


I create one share named grôzer but the share can’t be accessed.I looked into the log, and find the share name will be transformed to upper case and then lower case. The ASCII can be transformed in between successfully, but German can’t. It leaded to access failed. I also tried the upper case share grÔzer, and it works successfully. It seems the lower case can’t be transformed back from upper case.

The log is as follows:


[2007/02/06 18:59:46, 5] lib/username.c:Get_Pwnam_internals(234)

  Trying _Get_Pwnam(), username as lowercase is grÔzer

[2007/02/06 18:59:46, 5] lib/username.c:Get_Pwnam_internals(252)

  Trying _Get_Pwnam(), username as uppercase is GRÔZER
