Unicode character file names don't play
Here is my setup:
Desktop is WinXP SP2 using winamp 5.33 no plugins, skins, anything.
Music Server is Redhat Linux 4.0 running Samba Version 3.0.10-1.4E.
-If I play my MP3s from my local windows desktop's file system everything works fine!
-If I then copy over the files to the linux server and mount that files system as an SMB share
-I mount the share on my Windows desktop as X:
-I start to play my music, everything works fine until I get to songs that have UNICODE(french) characters in their file names. These songs do not play!! There is no error or warning, it just gets to the song, highlights the name in my play list then moves right to the next song!
Here is a dump of one of the file names that don't work:
ls *uk*|hexdump -C

00000030 33 0a |3.|
The directory path is all ASCII, this is the only part that has any UNICODE.
I'm not sure where this issue is, but I'm guessing it is in winamp not handling this file name correctly and moving on. But then why does it handle it correctly when I have the file locally? Weird!
Attached is the file, hopefully the file name remains intact during the upload.
