I've done a little more testing (between a Win2K and an NT4 server at a
site that I don't manage), and I can cofirm that this is a Samba only
New Test Case:
1. Create a file on a local drive
2. Copy the file to the server (eg. by dragging).
3. Change the hidden attribute of the local file
4. Copy file to server
5. A message will appear asking if you want to replace the file. Say yes
Copying from 2k to NT works fine.
Copying from 2k to Samba with map hidden = no works fine
Copying from 2k to Samba with map hidden = yes FAILS (ps. make sure the
create mask doesn't clear the world execute bit).
Hope this helps.
