Possibly, but you are in the wrong forum. You want the samba at samba.org

For smbfs (smbmount) could you send kernel logs from this? (dmesg output)
Either to me and/or to the right mailinglist.

I think the problem is that when you list these files ls is doing both
readdir() and stat(). For some reason the name it gets from readdir isn't
understood in the stat call.

Does '/bin/ls --color=never /some_path' work better?
