I have a RH9 server with samba 3.0.5 on it. I have a nfs mount from an AIX
server mounted on this linux server.
I shared this nfsmounted filesystem via samba with our windows clients.
Our problem is that in a directory with a large amount of files (somewhere
between 200 and 2000) the files that are shown via windows are less than the
amount of files on the unix and also on the linux servers. So our windows
clients cannot trust what they see on their screen.
The files have special names with whitespaces in them:
SYM. BUBBLE WINDOW KIN BTO 27.06.03.model

I saw similar problems on the web, but no solutions. Can someone help us?
This is catia, right? Catia has some really nasty stuff in its file names that
windows natively does not support. I've got a mapping module somewhere that gets
these sane. Please contact me (vl at samba dot org) directly if you want this
module, I would have to dig it up somewhere.

Yes, I send you an email, so if you find the module... I would be very gratefull.
Is bug id 1837 related???
In my opinion it is not a catia problem, but more like a codepage problem?

I don't think it is codepage related... As You can see I've written in bug id
1837 some examples that I can and cannot see. Tere is an example, which has no
special characters, the most unwanted character is the space...
Just to say: I've tried with SuSE samba-client and that was all right,
everything was listed :(
can you please do a "find ." inside the directory containing the nasty files,
redirect the output into a file, gzip that file (that's important so tha the
content will stay definetely unchanged!) and mail it to me or attach to this bug?
Created attachment 712 [details]
directory listing wich is not displayed correctly on windows
please retest against 3.0.14a and see the notres for large
directory support in the 3.0.12 portion of the release notes.
If the problem still exists, then feel free to reopen this bug.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
