This bug is very important for us who have used accented characters in file names.

Wine versions since about 2004 (I can't really tell) freeze if an attempt is
made to read a vfat partition mounted with the UTF8 option, or a symbolic link
to such partition, displaying some message on the console about windows 95

Older versions of wine can read utf8 mounted vfat directories only if they
contain only MS-DOS 8.3 complying names.

With such older versions and vfat in kernel 2.6 it is possible to read with the
correct long names both in Wine and Linux if the /etc/fstab entry for the
partition has both "codepage=iso8859-1" and "utf8" options.
