Description Brian 2004-05-16 09:47:34 UTC
When parsing a listing of files and directories on a remote share (smb/ntfs5) on
windows xp pro I recieve inconsistant results (counts).  The share contains only
'normal' files no sim-links (shortcuts) or the like.   here is the procedure I
use to produce the error.  

smbclient -V
Version 3.0.2-7.FC1

mount -o username=user,password=pass,ro //desktop/mp3 /data/mp3/

cd /data/mp3

ls -aR | grep -c .
26702

ls -aR | grep -c .
26554

ls -aR | grep -c .
26702

ls -aR | grep -c .
26455

ls -aR | grep -c .
26455

ls -aR | grep -c .
26702

I realise that this is counting . and .. but that is irrelevant..   the count
should be the same every time.  This may not be a samba problem at all, but it's
worth looking into.   

Thanks and keep up the good work, 
Brian

actually this is an smbfs issue.  We don't maintain 
that kernel module.  You might however want to try the 
cifs fs module for the 2.6 kernel.
