problem also occurs on FC5 (2.6.18-1.2200.fc5) but works on 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5
with smbd Version 3.0.23c-1.fc5

It allows you to cd to a directory and then read/write, but ls fails completely
Comment 2 Michael Sellers 2006-11-06 14:41:31 EST
same problem
Comment 3 Steve French 2006-11-25 15:44:39 EST
Fixed now and available in FC update (block size was shrunk in FC update,
affecting readdir).  Duplicate of various bug numbers,  including bug 212123

This should be returned
