I have a rather stupid problem with samba. I'm using Suse 8.0 as samba
server and on my windows clients I can't use any file anymore which has/have
(directory-)names other than the 8.3 format.

Windows says 'Check if the program is valid and is not used by an other
If I change back de directoryname where the program is located to any
shortname (was PABX system -> PABX), then there is no problem.

This problem always occurs which DOS programs and some windows programs.

Best Regards.
