Problems with map hidden (and possibly map system)

Just to confirm, this also happens with Samba 3.0alpha20.
If I make a file on my c drive, drag it onto the share
(defined below) named 'mccall' (unix perms 777), that works.
If I THEN mark that file readonly on my c drive, and drag it
onto the share 'mccall' again, it asks me if I want to overwrite
the existing file, I say yes, and I get the error:
"Cannot copy filename: Access is denied.
Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected
and that the file is not currently in use."
