FindFirst/FindNext on HFS+ under Linux and forgotten files

We are seeing a slightly weird situation with Samba 3.0.14a and HFS+ under 
Linux when the client is using the DOS move command.

It seems to do a FindFirst/FindNext set to figure out how many files to 
move, and then does:

   FindFirst again and moves the files it finds

and then does

   FindNext giving the last file found in the FindFirst as the restart

and, it seems to miss the first file or two ...

That is, a few files are missed.

I will go delving into to code to check this out, but I wondered if anyone 
has seen this problem already?
