Funky Characters in SQL Loader

Hi folks
so I use SQL Developer's "Loader" format to export a big DB into flat files (LDR). However, I noticed that when reinserting them via SQL Loader,

Rodríguez (notice the accented "i") becomes Rodr¿¿guez.

Is there a way to stop this from happening? The files are generated and inserted in SUSE Linux.
