Description kjetil 2003-11-13 05:01:17 UTC
Similar errors in two samba 3 releases. 


1st error:

Running RedHat 7.3 kernel 2.4.21 with samba-3.0.1pre1-1_rh73.i386. Filesystem is
open XFS from sgi.

Linux:
mkdir /mnt/xfs/Test
echo ".." > /mnt/xfs/test
You now have one file (test) and one directory (Test).

Windows 2000:
Delete the file named "test". Without any question, the _directory_ "Test" is
deleted.


2nd error:

Running RedHat 7.3 kernel 2.4.21 with samba-3.0.0-2_rh73.i386. Filesystem is
open XFS from sgi.

Linux:
mkdir /mnt/xfs/Test
echo ".." > /mnt/xfs/test
You now have one file (test) and one directory (Test).

Windows 2000:
Once the file "test" is created, you are unable to enter/execute the directory
"Test". Try to delete the file named "test". The _directory_ "Test" is being
removed if it's created by Windows. If it's created in Linux, you get an error
message in W2k: "Cannot remove "test" - the directory name is invalid".  We're
not trying to remove the directory, but the file "test".
