As usual, I haven't had enough time to follow the thread.  You were asking 
why the client would guess that the path was a DFS path and that
capabilities bit was all I could come up with.  If that's not enough 
(which also makes sense) then there must be some other clue that the 
client is using.

I've got a test setup that I might be able to configure to run the tests.  
What kind of clients exhibit this behavior?
