Andrew, you mentioned that Samba should produce the same error codes as a 
Windows remote share.
Here's an interesting case:  The test below runs correctly on native NTFS, 
but fails as shown below with a remote Win2K share.
Samba produces the same error code as the remote case which means it fails 
IFSTEST as well.

So it appears even Microsoft doesn't produce identical results with local 
and remote NTFS disks/shares.

Test         :FileRelativePathCreationTest
Group        :OpenCreateGeneral
File         :g:\ifstest\code\opcreatg\frelpath.c
Line         :500
Description  :
An attempt was made at a relative file creation. This operation
is identical to a previous relative file creation, execept
here the filename is specified with a leading slath. This
is illegal and should return an invalid parameter status.
