From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; Hotbar 3.0)

Description of problem:
If you set WRITE CACHE SIZE with a value not equal to zero (0), files writed by 
Windows 95, 98 and Me can be filled with zeros.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set WRITE CACHE SIZE = 65535 in smb.conf
2. Use a Win9x client (95, 98 or Me)
3. Copy a file to the server and compare to original. 

Actual Results:  The file is equal in size, but differs in content. Checking 
CRC is usefull to confirm the file corruption.

Expected Results:  An equal file.

Additional info:

Just in Samba 2.2.x. This does not occour in 2.0.x
Setting the parameter WRITE CACHE SIZE = 0 solves the problem.

A bug wrt. WRITE CACHE SIZE was just fixed in CVS (see
<20020122075522.A28462@va.samba.org> ). Thus, it should be fixed in 2.2.3 when
this is available. Keeping open until rebuilt.
Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-10 19:32:11 EDT
Which was done a long time ago. Doh. 2.2.3-1 was the first, 2.2.3a-5 is the current.
