Have you tried one of the other clients (jcifs or smbclient or the Linux
cifs vfs) to see if it can display those files?  Do any of the
filenames/patch components (that do not display) contain international
characters above 128 decimal?   Can the missing directory/file be displayed
individually (e.g. by stat filename or ls filename)?
