mangling scheme

Recently I did find a little trouble in a program: it creates links
to the most recently used files, but using the not-so-'default' Win9X
mangling scheme, that is, 'program files' becomes 'progra~1' and not
I did a search over the samba archives and noticed some patches and 
discussions about performance and even about non-compliance between 
Win9x and WinNT mangling methods. Is there a working* patch to do 
that kind of stuff? If not, can someone point me to the algorithms
used by Win9X/NT to do that? Will such a patch be welcome by Samba?

Thanks in advance,

* performance is not a problem in my target network, so anything will
be really welcome :)
