I am running Samba on Linux RedHat 7.3. 

It is OK most of the time.

We use it for our ViewCvs viewer. Problem is when there are files called cmd (god knows who created that one) and others with dot prefix the directory does silly things. With the cmd file it displayed duplicate versions. First I though it was ViewCvs but then when I checked the directory in the samba link there they were..

Wella fter removing the cmd file all was well - until lately when now we get an empty directory - only trouble is that I know I have 922 files in it. is there a magic number that stops samba from displaying files? 

Yes I am talking about cvs repository files. They are all there in win2K (thank god).

Any help greatly appreciated. cvs will appreciate it too as if I can't get this bug out the corp. will terminate the cvs trial.
