smbmount problem with filenames from multiple codepages
Using Debian Etch, smbclient and smbfs verison 3.0.23c-1.

I'm getting myself into a quite tricky situation.

I'm trying to mount a shared folder from an XP box. In that folder there's a lot of files with Chinese filenames.
I mounted the share folder with iocharset=utf8 codepage=cp950.
If a filename is all Traditional Chinese then I was OK

Now the problem is, some of the files have a mixture of Traditional and Simplified Chinese characters in there.
So the result is, the Traditional Chinese characters showed up OK, but the Simplified Chinese characters becomes question marks "?"s. :scratch:

Tried codepage=cp936 / utf8, resulted in all garbage characters for all filenames.

Anyone with similar experience with a mixture of codepages within a single filename?
I don't even know where to begin asking as Googling results in references for single codepage only. :newbie:

Many thanks :)
