[Samba] smbclient special characters

Running Samba with fruit, smb is doing a good job managing illegal Apple filenames like 'myoddjob -> urPrbNow' but smbclient seems to not have the same capabilities.
Is there an item I'm missing that would allow smbclient to also mangle filenames as needed for Apple or is this somehow tied to the fruit: extensions? In the example above the greater than symbol causes smbclient to fail.
