Hi all,

I've recently managed to compile Samba v3.0.24 for OS/2 and have 
debugged most of the issues.

The positive is that relatively few source changes were required to 
get the daemon working, however, having said that, there are two 
problems that I'm still having trouble with.

1) smbpasswd is generating a broken password - so password protected 
clients can't connect.

eg. smbpasswd -a psmedley - with 'password' entered as the password 
puts the following into private/smbpasswd
8F741A01D:[U          ]:LCT-45E64927:

User psmedley can't connect with password of 'password'

sambapasswords.py from 
http://www.cdf.toronto.edu/~agenkin/py/index.pyc/software indicates 
that the password hash should be:
[E:\python25]python.exe sambapasswords.py
NT MD4 hash: password -> 8846F7EAEE8FB117AD06BDD830B7586C
LanMan hash: password -> E52CAC67419A9A224A3B108F3FA6CB6D

2) Files with a german character on a share do not show the german 
character, but the character gets replaced with an _

Samba log shows things like:
[2007/02/28 07:50:34, 3] lib/charcnv.c:convert_string_internal(243)
  convert_string_internal: Conversion error: Incomplete multibyte

Any ideas on the above two problems?
