Description of problem:
write only directories(other permissions set to write and execute only) do not
allow users to drag and drop items on them when mounted using a Windows client,
or mounted using nautilus under RHEL5, or mounted under a Mac OS X client.
Mounting the share using the mount.cifs in RHEL5.1 does allow for items to be
drag and dropped, using the mv or cp command, and also the touch command.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is very easily reproducable.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup a samba share and at least one samba user account that can access the
2. inside the share create a directory called dropbox. Give it the following
permissions. chmod go=wx ./dropbox
3. Connect to the share using a windows2000,XP, or Vista client.
4. drag and drop a simple text file on the dropbox directory.
an Error dialog saying access denied
File is copied into the dropbox directory
RHEL5 with samba version 3.0.23c-2 did not have this problem.
