[Samba] Reproducible samba bug with directory name

I just recreated this bug in samba-3.0.26a-3.3.
It is as simple as creating a directory named "F-08-6104 International
Management Assoc." (without the quotes), then looking at the name of
the directory via XP.
I've done it twice now:
OpenSUSE 10.2 + Samba 3.0.23d-19.7 + XFS, all from Novell
OpenSUSE 10.3 + samba-3.0.26a-3.3 + XFS, all from Novell
With both I get the same wrong name "FMIJ1P~A".
I don't have any other environments to test, maybe someone could try
other filesystems / OSes / Samba versions.
