This algorithm can cause name collisions only if files in a directory 
share the same first five alphanumeric characters. The probability of such 
a clash is 1/1300.
In my case probability is 50% :-))

Second problem:
Short names contains a percent sign "%", which cause problems while 
processing file names in batch files on Windows client.

System is Alpha Server 8200 running Tru64 UNIX 4.0d (AKA OSF/1, Digital 
Mangling parameters from smb.conf:
mangle case = no
mangled names = yes
case sensitive = no
default case = lower
preserve case = yes
short preserve case = yes
All these parameters are in [global] section only.

Changed parameters in smb.conf for 2.0.7.:
oplocks = no
client code page = 852
local master = yes
all other parameters are the same as for 1.9.17p4

Any solution or idea ?
