The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3051
File Name ending With a Dot
Last modified: 2005-08-30 08:56:06 UTC
I am using the samba as serving of archives of my network.
The archives with the name finished with a dot(".") are not shown
correctly when had access for the sharing.
Using the samba share:

please retest against 3.0.20 and reopen if the bug is still present.

SMB Share listing using Konqueror
Using samba 3.0.20 version the problem persists.
I think this is actually by design now that I look closer at
your report. IIRC Windows cannot handle filenames ending in
a dot. So the name has to be mangled.
Jeremy, can you confirm ?
Indeed Windows will not handle names ending in dot. If you try and create one it
silently truncates it. So we must mangle such names.
