In order to track this down I'm going to need debug level 10
logs from the system when it works, and from when it doesn't.

wireshark traces from between the two would also help.

Please open a bug @ bugzilla.samba.org and attach
this information. Note we're going to need the entire
logs and also the binary wireshark traces, not the
text versions.

It's possible that this is a bug I've just fixed in the
non-unicode character handling (checked into the samba-3-2-test
git branch). If you could test that version that would be
very helpful.
