I can't get proper Character Conversion on my Network:

	PCD-4H: {12} mount_smbfs -E ISO8859-1:cp850 //fed@Bremen/fed /mnt
	PCD-4H: {13} ls -d /mnt/FSC*
	/mnt/FSC Datenbl?tter
The result should be:
	/mnt/FSC Datenblätter

"PCD-4H" runs NetBSD 2.0
"Bremen" runs Windows 2003 Server

Character Conversion works fine with Samba.

Way back in 2003 Jaromir Dolecek wrote, that "There is currently no
support for different character encodings, i.e. -E option doesn't
actually work at this moment."

Is character conversion functional with Mount_smbfs distributed with
NetBSD 2.0?
Kind Regards
