Update on this,

I've tried replacing the lowercase with a call to unix_convert (in
msdfs.c) whilst doing this, I noticed something interesting....

I have a unix directtory


mapped using a default service under a virtual server ...


in the directory I have several directories including one called 'AB'
and another called 'ab'. when you navigate into 'ab' Win2K explorer
decides to change the path to '\\virtual\XYZ\AB' (uppercase) but samba
gets the lowercase request ... so it sends the request as was then
decides to refresh the display with the upper case path,
ain't it fun :-)
