mount_smbfs -E UTF-8:UTF-8 //server/path /mnt/tmp

UTF-8 filenames do not show up at all on the FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE client.

They show up just fine using smbclient and mounted as nfs, files also
show up fine on Windows clients.

Is there a limitation with smbfs in handling UTF-8 samba mounts?

Or am I giving the wrong options to mount_smbfs?
