smbtorture TRANS2SCAN trips over an NT_STATUS_FILE_IS_A_DIRECTORY error ...

I was running all the smbtorture tests against a version of 2.5.12
with the ACL fixes from 3.6.1 back ported to it, and get this curious

[2011/12/11 11:25:10.323393, 10] smbd/open.c:3189(create_file_unixpath)
  create_file_unixpath: NT_STATUS_FILE_IS_A_DIRECTORY

Which seems to occur because:

                if (NT_STATUS_EQUAL(status, NT_STATUS_FILE_IS_A_DIRECTORY)) {

                        /* A stream open never opens a directory */

                        if (base_fsp) {
                                status = NT_STATUS_FILE_IS_A_DIRECTORY;
                                goto fail;

and the scanner test does:

        if (!NT_STATUS_IS_OK(cli_open(cli, fname, O_RDWR | O_CREAT | O_TRUNC,
                         DENY_NONE, &fnum))) {
                printf("open of %s failed\n", fname);
                return false;
        if (!NT_STATUS_IS_OK(cli_open(cli, "\\", O_RDONLY, DENY_NONE, &dnum))) {
                printf("open of \\ failed\n");
                return false;

Has this test been broken for a while? Did it work at one stage but no more?

A quick check shows that on the wire it was an ordinary open&X ...

If the test no longer works perhaps it should be removed or fixed.
