Read the archives for August (and possibly September) on the Microsoft 
CIFS list.

Mike Allen (jCIFS project) determined that Microsoft doesn't actually 
implement this SMB.  At least, not in the testing that he was able to do.
If you know Java, it is very simple to modify jCIFS code to test the 
SMB_COM_COPY command.  You can try blasing all of the different servers to 
see if they respond "correctly".  As far as I know, this SMB doesn't work.
