In KDE4 Unicode characters in pendrives filenames are not shown correctly. I 
guess this is because the pendrive's mount options don't include "utf8":

/dev/sdc1 on /media/UDISK type vfat (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=hal,uid=1000)

In KDE3 the pendrive is mounted with these options:

/dev/sdc1 on /media/UDISK type vfat 

and the filenames are all shown correctly.

How can I tell KDE4 to use the correct mount options? Any suggestions would be
