[swish-e] Problem with filenames/character sets

From: Rainer Hofmann <hofmann(at)>

following situation gives me an headache:

Windows clients (Lang=de, CP1252) put PDF-Files onto a fileserver (Linux 
Lang=en_us.utf) via Samba.
Those files are periodically indexed by swish-e located on the server. 
Works pretty well so far.
But if  clients use non ASCII-characters like  in their file or 
directory names they run into trouble, when searching these files.
There is a swish-e installed on each windows client. A little GUI is 
used to do the query. Filenames are retrieved, but show wrong characters 
in their names. If users want to open such a file it results in "file 
not found".
Is there a configuration directive for swish-e to solve this problem?

with kind regards
