I just tested this - rename does work fine with Samba and
Win2k - the issue is that the explorer shell in w2k is
lazy when the server supports changenotify calls (which
Samba does) and doesn't bother to update the view even though
it knows a change has been made, it waits for the server
to respond to the changenotify. With a user level implementation
as is currently in Samba 2.0.7 it can be 30 seconds for
this update to come though.

I will look at forcing a faster update for the Samba 2.2.0

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
