If Samba ever silently truncates filenames then that is a serious
bug. Please give a reproducible test case (preferably using smbclient)
so we can fix it.
If Samba receives a filename that is too long for some internal limit
then it should:
1) if it is a directory listing, it should be mangled or not displayed
2) if it is a name from a client than it should give an error.
The error I would expect to see is:
DEBUG(0,("ERROR: string overflow by %d in safe_strcpy [%.50s]\n",
