Can someone confirm this? Access denied when overwriting hidden
files on windows.

I've tried to get some answers on this but so far no input.
Can someone just confirm this behaviour, please?
I'm having a little problem copying files with hidden attribute set
from my samba machine to a XP client.
Copying the files from the XP client to the samba box works perfect
but if I do it the other way around I get access denied, even though
I'm using a local Administrator account.
If I remove the hidden attribute from the file I'm overwriting it works.
I can also delete them but not overwrite them.
How can I solve this? Does smbclient automatically treat hidden files
as read only but only when overwriting?
