User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001

Description of problem:
Swat shows unreadable messages on Japanese environment (ja_JP.UTF-8).
Top page is good. But all other pages (global, shares, etc.) are 

I tried all Japanese encodings (UTF-8, Shift_JIS, EUC-JP, 
ISO-2022-JP), but no encoding made them readable.

adding 'display charset = UTF-8' to global section of /etc/samba/smb.conf
seems to solve this problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC2 with ja_JP.UTF-8 environment
2. enable swat on service conf
3. access http://localhost:901/globals with web browser which support

Actual Results:  unreadable buttons, comments, etc on the page.

Expected Results:  readable page.

You should also file this upstream at https://bugzilla.samba.org

I'm not sure this is samba's bug.
It maybe packaging problem.
So I don't submit this to samba.org at this time.

Try uninstalling samba*3.0.7-2.FC2*.rpm, and install the Fedora RPMs from 
www.samba.org (I see them at 
http://us3.samba.org/samba/ftp/Binary_Packages/Fedora/RPMS/i386/core/2/ but 
you may get a different (faster) mirror).  Retry connecting to swat.  If it 
still fails, the problem is definitely an upstream one that you should report 
to bugzilla.samba.org.
