If a directory being redirected via rdesktop 1.5.0
contains files with non-latin (e.g. Russian) names, these files
do not show correctly at Windows side. For example, one of such files appears as ÷ÎÅÄÒÅÎÉÅ ÓÉÓÔÅÍÙ ÕÐÒÁ×ÌÅÎÉÑ ËÕÒÓÁÍÉ Sakai × ÕÞÅÂÎÙÊ ÐÒÏÃÅÓÓ. It seems that rdesktop sends them in ISO 8859-1 encoding.

The file system was mounted using the following command
mount_msdosfs -L ru_RU.KOI8-R /dev/device /mnt/

LANG environment variable is set to ru_RU.KOI8-R. ls command displays everything correctly.
