Windows 95 Briefcase

Hello everyone...

I have been using Samba v1.9.16p11 for a little while now and I just
noticed that when I create a Windows 95 Briefcase on a Samba drive it
appears as a folder (directory).  This also happens when I move a
briefcase created on a local drive to the network.  I admit a small degree
of ignorance here because I do not have an NT box to test the setup with
so I do not know if this is a Samba bug, a Win 95 bug, or something
completely different (a failing in the design of the briefcase maybe?).

I normally would never notice this as I don't use the briefcase myself
(and am not familiar with it in detail), but I was trying to get it
working for someone else and kept encountering this problem.  Has anyone
else seen this?

Thank you very much,
