Does "hg verify" pass on the samba share? The first thing I would try is
to stop using shared filesystem behind hgweb to see if it is a filesystem
issue or not.

Character encoding could be a problem if the repository has files of non-ASCII
name, and if the underlying filesystem is encoding-aware (e.g. Samba.) If the
repository is stored in local Unix filesystems (and if clients are Windows),
filenames are just bytes so cp1251 filenames should just work.
