Description cesar 2009-01-07 15:46:21 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.1.3)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

When I use Dolphin to connect to shared directories with samba protocol, I get the folowing pop-up when a directory/file is present with accents (éèöäàç):

 The file doesn't exist :

The issue is not due to my samba server because I tried with two samba servers:
* Windows XP2 shared directories
* Ubuntu Gutsy shares with samba.

The issue is reproduced on:
* Mandriva 2009 (kde4.1.3)
* OPENSuse 11.1 (kde4.1.3)

If the samba shares is mounted via a shell command which specifies the iocharset, the issue is no more present. 

fstab example:
 //server/mountpoint /media/sambaShares cifs users,credential=/etc/smb.credential,iocharset=utf8 0 0
