Package: exo-utils
Version: 0.3.4-4
Severity: important

exo-mount doesn't sev utf8 when mounting vfat partition.
This leads to unreadeble names on pluggable vfat formatted devices.
The same bug from ubuntu:
It is fixed using a simple patch: 

I suppose this bug should be fixed in Debian prior fixes in xfce because
it makes all vfat flash media with non-English names unusable.
