In Samba 3.0.21, a directory with -rx-rx-rx permissions could be used as a "drop box": users could put stuff in there but not list that directory. This functionality broke some time later in the 3.0 series.
Under http://article.gmane.org/gmane.network.samba.internals/42646 find a patch that restores this. Starting with
this patch was extensively discussed.
Pushed to master and 3.4. I think this also should go into 3.2.x and 3.3.x.

Volker, I think this additional change on top of your patch makes the code a little clearer and fixes the comment to match the code. Can you review please and push to master/3.4 if you agree ?

patches for 3.3
Thanks, pushed with reformatting. Attached find the patches for 3.3.
I think the review process has been fulfilled by Jeremy and me looking at both patches. Can you push that to 3.3?
Yes, we can! ;-)
Closing out bug report.
