Description citizen 2005-11-28 21:17:49 UTC
in smb.conf
create share folder "a b c"
Create share folder "abc"
then go to windows network neighborhood, only "a b c" is displayed.

I found that is because in function getservicebyname(),
it call strwicmp() to check service name duplicate.

I've tested this with 3.0.21rc2 and can't reproduce your problem.

   comment = abc share
   path = /srv/samba/abc
   guest ok = Yes
[a b c]
   comment = a b c share
   path = /srv/samba/a_b_c
   guest ok = Yes

I placed one file in each dir with different names to ensure the client - Microsoft Windows XP SP 2 english - got the right share.

If the bug is still valid for you please reopen the report and add your smb.conf, at least the two share definitions.

I see the 3.0.21rc2 source code.
I agree this had been fixed in version 3.0.21rc2.
but I  have another case in version 3.0.20b,
create share folder "a   b   c" with three space in between a, b and c.
Create share folder "a b c"
then go to windows network neighborhood, only "a b c" is displayed, with one space in between a, b, and c.

I patch this with follows, but I don't know why need this in the original code ?

Just retried with current 3.2 and 3.3. Works fine in those releases, closing as fixed. Please re-open if it's still an issue for you in 3.3.5.
