Well, it was /quite/ further than that.

I think I got it this time, in sources3/smbd/mangle_hash2.c:

                         * Note that if CH_UNIX is utf8 a string may be 3
                         * bytes, but this is ok as mb utf8 characters don't
                         * contain embedded ascii bytes. We are really
                         * for mb UNIX asian characters like Japanese
(SJIS) here.
                         * JRA.
                        DEBUG(3, ("DEBUG ++ name, %s\n", name));

name, 2, mbc, 2, False) == 2) {
                                /* Was a good mb string. */
                                name += 2;
                        DEBUG(3, ("DEBUG -- name, %s\n", name));

Why is the length here hardcoded to 2?

It's past 2am around here, so I could be missing something, time for bed.
