Printing problems with 2.0.0 vs 1.9.18p10

We are having a problem with printing under the current 2.0.0 source tree.

It seems that Win95 machines do an OpenX for file with a blank name when
writing to a printing share.

Under Samba1.9.18p10, this gets translated to %m.random in the name
mangling code, but under 2.0.0, this gets translated to ., which is a
directory, and we get back an error response.

Has anyone seen this behaviour and can anyone see a fix?
