Possible BUG report

I think I may have found a bug in Samba.  I'm new to this so it's possible
that it may just be a misconfiguration on my part.  

Here's the symptom: When I open a file through Samba from a Windows box
using the code below I never get the "Existing file" case.  GetLastError()
always returns 0.  If I change the path to point to a share on a Windows
computer it works correctly.  

I'm running Samba 2.2.2 on SuSE Linux 7.3.  The Windows box is running
Windows 2000 SP2.

If you have any ideas or need any more info let me know.

Thanks for any help you can provide,
