If a file does not exists the following code fails and cause windows to issue
permission error.

  fd = default_vfs_ops.open(conn,inname,flags,mode);

This code works as expected returning a message to windows "does exist do you want
to create"

  return default_vfs_ops.open(conn,inname,flags,mode);

( these call would have following parameter values:
  inname = x.txt
  flags = 2
  mode = 436

if you hard code the flags parameter to 66 the first bit of code works. ??

Can anyone shed some light on this.

by the way ... I have found that cut/paste or winword don't do this!
