Unicode filenames display incorrect

I have a QNAP NAS Server running Linux 2.6.30.6.

When using Windows Explorer (through Samba) I can copy a file to it with name such as "Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω" and file name shows up as expected.

But, when I display that folder with WinSCP (4.2.7.758), that filename shows up as "?e???a ?a?? - ?ta? t?a???d??"

Does anyone know what I should do to display those filenames correctly.

I tried as many variations as I can, and here are the results:

Protocol: FTP
Case 1: Unicode: Auto
File displays as: ?e???a ?a?? - ?ta? t?a???d??

Case 2: Unicode: Off
File displays as: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω

Case 3: Unicode: On
File displays as: ?e???a ?a?? - ?ta? t?a???d??

Protocol: SCP
File isn't displayed at all.

Protocol: SFTP
Case 1: Unicode: Auto
SFTP version 0: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 1: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 2: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 3: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 4: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 5: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω

Case 2: Unicode: Off
SFTP version 0: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 1: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 2: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 3: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 4: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω
SFTP version 5: Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω

Case 3: Unicode: On
SFTP version 0: ?e???a ?a?? - ?ta? t?a???d??
SFTP version 1: ?e???a ?a?? - ?ta? t?a???d??
SFTP version 2: ?e???a ?a?? - ?ta? t?a???d??
SFTP version 3: ?e???a ?a?? - ?ta? t?a???d??
SFTP version 4: ?e???a ?a?? - ?ta? t?a???d??
SFTP version 5: ?e???a ?a?? - ?ta? t?a???d??

Note: When the file is displayed as
'Μελίνα Κανά - Όταν τραγουδάω'
all other (non-Greek) unicode filenames were displayed incorrectly.

I'm just working on Unicode version of WinSCP. You have to be patient.

I am in no hurry: Can't look a gift horse in the teeth.

Thank you for this great app.
