It more or less works (YMMV) for shares with spanish accentuated
characters as long as samba<3.0, although some functionality in samba
does not work. This issue was addressed in samba 3.0 and procedures were
changed to utf. Xffm 4.2 will adopt the new way, although the
SMB_CODESET will still be available for local files.
