Last weekend, I had tried those tests but Japanese itself wasn't
displayed correctly at first place (both of UTF-8, EUC-JP names
were illegally converted, or didn't appear at all), what I tried
at smb.conf were as follows,

    unix charset = EUC-JP/UTF-8
    dos charset = CP932
    display charset = CP932

but as far as I had searched, I guess the problem is in Samba 3.x

Then, here's an another problem that if I put EUC-JP or UTF-8 file
into the home directory, one of xffm related modules crashes (not
total crash). Too bad, attached stack trace log seems quite useless
in this case and I couldn't make sure what caused it actually.

Also it might not be related encoding issue, when I re-sized & exited &
restarted xfce4-fm, it doesn't show icons at home directly, seems to
cause hang or the like. It's difficult to explain, but when I moved
to another directory from the home, it shows icons ordinary ...

All thing had happened under
