So, I have the same problem. Long time I try get help from samba guys, 
but no answer... (

I resolve this problem. I think so. 

Edit file /source/smbd/dir.c
Find function:

BOOL get_dir_entry(connection_struct *conn,char *mask,int dirtype,char *fname,
                   SMB_OFF_T *size,int *mode,time_t *date,BOOL check_descend) 
... skipped .....

  if (!conn->dirptr)                        

 if (strequal(mask, "????????.???"))       
      pstrcpy(mask, "*");                   

  while (!found)                            


Try this...

Best, Serg <serg at>
