I think I might have foun the problem. In reply_getatr() we have this


  /* dos smetimes asks for a stat of "" - it returns a "hidden directory"
     under WfWg - weird! */
  if (! (*fname))
      mode = aHIDDEN | aDIR;
      if (!CAN_WRITE(conn)) mode |= aRONLY;
      size = 0;
      mtime = 0;
      ok = True;
  else {

the new unix_convert() code will break that as it will never return a
null filename.

Jeremy, how do you want to fix this? Change unix_convert() to allow
null filenames?
