User data from LDAP: Character encoding problem

First post, so first of all I want to say thanks for this great product.

This actually is happening in my test installation against Active Directory, anyway I suffered the same problem a few days ago using OpenLDAP: User and group data imported from AD (Win2k3 Server, Spanish version) is represented with wrong format in Alfresco's web client.

Problems are all with non-english characters (á, é, ñ…)

I'm not sure where the problem is, but I guess is has something to do with LDAP import tasks: I can create spaces with names containing tildes, so I guess tomcat, linux (gentoo), postgres and alfresco are all working fine.

I googled and searched the forum before posting, hope I'm not repeating a topic.

BTW: I'm using Alfresco 2.1.0 war file. Any clue about what should I do?

Just ask if you need any code.

Thanks
