The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 7005
mangle method = hash truncates files with dot '.' character
Last modified: 2010-04-16 06:11:54 UTC
"hash" mangling was stripping suffixes from filenames with a dot/period character.
This was made visible only after the fix for 6939 because till then hash wasn't really working at all.
Jeremy already has a fix worked up to restore the dot. (It was being intentionally removed in a const string.)
This does not affect hash2 (the default method).
Example case to help if anyone searches for this:
The directory "OpenOffice.org" will be displayed as "OpenOffice" in windows clients and smbclient. However, attempting to open that directory will fail unless you include the (invisible) ".org"
